New York State Prescription Form Program

 

The New York State Health Department, in a statewide effort to prevent prescription fraud and protect the public health, began notifying every New York licensed health professional back in December 2004 of new regulations and directions regarding issuing prescriptions on official NY State prescription forms and registration of practitioners and offices/facilities where prescriptions are written.

Effective April 19, 2006,  regulation covering ALL PRESCRIPTIONS, not just prescriptions for controlled substances, went into effect.
