Michigan: 2022 EPCS Compliance Delayed
The Michigan compliance enforcement deadline has been delayed until January 1, 2023. Are you prepared for EPCS?
RXNT Will Help You Comply With EPCS in Michigan
On January 1st, 2023, Michigan will enforce that all prescriptions, including Schedule II–V controlled substance medications, must be transmitted electronically to pharmacies in Michigan state. Originally set for October 1st, 2021 the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) moved the deadline to 2023 in accordance with the Federal EPCS for Medicare delay outlined in CMS' 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule.
For more specific information about the original Michigan EPCS ruling, see Section 17754a of the Public Health Code, as well as Senate Bill 248 and Senate Bill 254 from the Michigan Legislature, which detail the electronic prescribing requirements and exemptions.
Violation of the provisions could result in penalties or fines for your practice! To comply with EPCS regulations, prescribers must complete identity proofing, set up a two-factor authentication device, and utilize certified, secure electronic prescription software.
