Last year, a federal law was enacted that requires electronic prescribing for controlled substances (EPCS) prescribed through the Medicare Part D drug program. In addition, Walmart will ban paper prescriptions in its pharmacies starting in 2020. More than a dozen states have also mandated EPCS with effective dates in the next couple of years.

You’ll also learn what you need to know to prepare for an EPCS implementation, and the DEA requirements you must meet to stay compliant.
