April 1st is around the corner, and for all prescribers, including NPs, that means new regulations will be in effect. Any written prescription for clients with Medicaid have to be on prescriptions that prevent unauthorized copying, erasure or modification, or counterfeiting.
I previously wrote about this, along with some resources on where to purchase these prescription pads and paper this past July, Prescription Writing Law for for Medicaid Patients and Tamper Proof Prescriptions.
Remember, this only applies to prescriptions written/printed. This will not apply to electronic scripts or phone scripts.
