Interactive Map: U.S. States With EPCS Legislation

On January 1, 2023, 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, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Utah, and Washington also have Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) legislation that took effect just recently on January 1st, 2022. RXNT will keep you up to date on the ruling for your state! Check out our article on EPCS Mandates: The State Of Electronic Prescribing For Controlled Substances (EPCS) In 2022.

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 your practice writes prescriptions (controlled or non-controlled) in a state that requires EPCS, RXNT will get you certified in just days. Check for your state's deadline in the interactive map below, and sign up for a demo of our EPCS-certified Electronic Prescribing software!

CMS Delays Federal EPCS Compliance Enforcement To 2023

Find out everything you need to know about the Federal E-Prescribing Mandate, and what it means for your practice. In 2018, Section 2003 of the H.R. 6 - SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act mandated that Schedule II-V controlled substances under Medicare Part D should be prescribed electronically by January 1, 2021.

Due in part to COVID-19, in December 2020 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final ruling that delayed enforcement of compliance penalties by one year until 2022. In 2021, CMS recently delayed enforcement again until January 1, 2023.

Avoid the penalties! Add RXNT's award-winning E-Prescribing software that satisfies both the upcoming Federal and State regulations and connects directly to your state’s PDMP/PMP. Get started by scheduling an easy virtual demonstration—we'll have you up and running in less than a week!

Seamless PDMP Integrations Are Easier Than Ever!

RXNT offers direct, integrated access to state Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMP) and Prescription Monitoring Programs (PMP). We work with Bamboo Health (formerly Appriss Health), to connect you directly to state PDMPs without needing to open a new tab or window to find prescription information. You won't experience any interruption to your workflow because PMP/PMP conveniently integrated right within RXNT's E-Prescribing (eRx) solution (plus our Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Full Suite, too!)

Often, integration is available at no additional cost to you! Sometimes, your state does not cover the cost. Find out your state's integration capability and funding status here!
