Interactive Map: States With EPCS Legislation

On January 1, 2022, EPCS will be enforced for Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage prescription drug plans, originally outlined in the Every Prescription Conveyed Securely Act in 2018. But it's not just the federal government mandating e-prescribing of controlled medications. Many states, including California, Maryland, Michigan, Indiana, Utah, New Hampshire, Washington, and Nebraska also have Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) legislation taking effect soon on 1/1/22. RXNT will keep you up to date on the ruling for your state! Check out this article: The State Of Electronic Prescribing For Controlled Substances In 2021.

Not only do providers need to comply with EPCS, but they also need to register with and receive an ID number from the DEA under DEA Title 21, Chapter II. Compliance also requires two-factor authentication tokens and strict safeguards for any passwords.

Don't stress! If you or your practice write controlled substance prescriptions in a state that requires EPCS, RXNT can get you certified in a matter of days. Check for your state's deadline below, and sign up for a demo of our EPCS-certified Electronic Prescribing software today!
