COMPLIANCE with Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) regulations
Effective December 31, 2021, in compliance with Senate Enrolled Act 176, the State of Indiana mandates that ALL prescriptions for a controlled substance be issued through an electronic format and transmission (E-prescribing).
In compliance with Senate Act 176 and the Patients and Communities Act passed by the federal government in 2018, the State of Indiana through INSPECT is now providing funding to ensure that all practices are in full compliance by the state's statutory deadline of December 31, 2021. Dentists, Physicians, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, Optometrists, Physician Assistants, and Podiatrists in violation of these provisions will be subject to disciplinary action.
