MDA special alerts announcement E-prescribe requirement delayed until 2023

Feds Delay e-Prescribe Mandate Until 2023; Michigan Requirement Now Delayed As Well

The federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services on Nov. 19 announced a delay in the effective date for the electronic prescribing mandate to Jan. 1, 2023 — more than a year from now. The effective date of Michigan's e-prescribing law, which was to go into effect Oct. 1 and was later delayed until Jan. 1, 2022, is tied to the federal CMS rules. Therefore, compliance with Michigan’s e-prescribing requirement has also been delayed to Jan. 1, 2023.

The state of Michigan has yet to develop rules for waivers for the e-prescribe requirement. The MDA is monitoring the rulemaking process regarding waivers and will communicate information about eligibility, forms, and applying for a waiver as it is received.

Dentists who have not yet begun e-prescribing now have more time to review their options and get into compliance. Those who are already in compliance may continue to e-prescribe.
