Law requires security prescription forms to include prescriber's preprinted address

Pharmacy focus

A new California law will take effect July 1 requiring security prescription forms for controlled substances to include the preprinted address of the prescriber.

Security prescription forms that do not have the preprinted address of the prescriber can be dispensed by the pharmacist until July 1. Prescription forms not in compliance are invalid and cannot be accepted on or after July 1.

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 & Safety Code 11162.1[c][2]).
