As of Nov. 1, 2014, providers of long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) must use “NCPDP SCRIPT 10.6” or higher standard for the electronic transmission of prescriptions or medication orders if they send these prescriptions/orders electronically to a pharmacy that is a separate legal entity from their organization, and if the prescription is eligible for reimbursement under Medicare Part D.
LeadingAge CAST did a survey of vendors and they are trying to assess provider’s readiness. You can read about the topic and see a summary of the vendors’ readiness survey in the updated article: Nov. 1 ePrescribing Deadline: LTPAC Vendor Readiness.
Providers on the listserv are invited to complete the Provider Readiness Survey to better understand your readiness, plans for compliance, and to offer suggestions. Complete the 5 minute online survey.
