    The physician’s Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Certificates of Registration were placed on immediate suspension as of April 31, 2010. In May 2010, the physician conducted a meeting in which Dr. Ballengee agreed to sign off on prescriptions for controlled substances for the physician’s patients. In June 2010 two patients were seen by the physician and received prescriptions for controlled substances written out by the physician and contained Dr. Ballengee’s signature, although Dr. Ballengee did not provide any care to the patients on the date that the prescriptions were written.

    Action Taken

    The State of Indiana requests that the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana set a hearing on the petition for summary suspension and suspend the physician’s license for a period of ninety days and for all other proper relief.

    July 28, 2010 – Order Denying Petition for Summary Suspension

    The Medical Licensing Board of Indiana considered this matter and finds that it was not established the physician would represent a clear and immediate endanger to the public health and safety if allowed to continue to practice. Therefore the Petition for Summary Suspension is denied.
