Ensure Proper Handling of E-Rxs for Controlled Substances
You'll see more controlled substance Rxs sent via electronic prescribing...in an effort to prevent fraud, diversion, abuse, etc.
New laws mandating e-Rxs for controls take effect Jan 1 for AZ, FL, IA, NC, OK, and RI. Six states already require it...more will follow.
And a federal law will require e-prescribing for controlled meds billed to Medicare Part D starting in 2021.
