New 2012 CA Rx Law - Security Prescription Forms for Controlled Substances

This was just sent out by the California State Board of Pharmacy.  It's important enough, that you should stop to read this, and make sure your policies and procedures are in compliance with the new laws.

According to the Board:

This is a reminder about a new law taking effect July 1, 2012 regarding the required elements for security forms for controlled substances:

Effective January 1, 2012, security prescription forms for controlled substances must include the preprinted address of the prescriber (Health and Safety Code section 11162.1). Security prescription forms that do not have the preprinted address of the prescriber can be dispensed by the pharmacist until July 1, 2012. Prescription forms not in compliance are invalid and cannot be accepted on or after July 1, 2012.

Additionally, licensed health care facilities or clinics exempt under Section 1206 (those having 25 or more licensed physicians or surgeons preprinted on the form) are not required to preprint the category of licensure and license number of their facility or clinic (Health and Safety Code 11162.1[c][2]).
