Frequently Asked Questions
Are pharmacies set up for EPCS?
Over 95% of U.S. pharmacies are EPCS enabled, so be confident that you can securely transmit prescriptions to nearly any location.
Will I need to change my workflow for EPCS?
Changes will be minimal. For example, you will need to use a hard or soft token for authentication. Our training staff can walk you through the process.
What's needed to certify my identity?
You'll need to show your medical license, a government-issued document with your photo, and proof of your mailing address.
