12 Nov E-Prescribing Mandate FAQs
E-Prescribing Mandate Effective January 1: IDA Offers Affordable Compliance Option
Effective January 1, 2021, all Indiana prescriptions for controlled substances must be transmitted electronically to the pharmacy. Paper prescriptions for controlled substances will no longer be allowed. In response to this new state regulation, IDA’s IDEA Board vetted two companies that provide this service. IDEA is pleased to announce that DrFirst has been selected as the IDA preferred vendor for electronic prescriptions.
DrFirst offers an iPrescribe app, which can be downloaded to any tablet or phone. Through the app, a practitioner can send controlled substance prescriptions electronically in compliance with Indiana and federal law.
DrFirst is offering its app for FREE to IDA members for the first two years, with a $10 per month fee starting in the third year. This low cost solution is ideal for many dental offices, especially those that prescribe controlled substances only sporadically.
DrFirst offered an introductory webinars to educate IDA members on its services. Click here to view the recording of the webinar.
