Verifying State Issued Driver's Licenses and Identification Cards

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the abuse of prescription medication is an epidemic in America. Unfortunately, the illegal market for prescription medication is second only to marijuana. Because of this, law enforcement and the medical profession has identified a growing number of professional drug seekers who use fake identification cards or driver's licenses (using alias names and addresses) to become accepted as patients. These illicit drug seekers may work as may as 50 doctors a month and make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.

Staff responsible for processing new patients is the clinic's first line of defense. Understanding the techniques used to verify driver's licenses and/or identification cards can help stop these people from infiltrating clinics.
