Tamper Resistant Rx Pads

Rx Pads Our Tamper Resistant Prescription Pads are an economical solution for complying with the new Medicaid law*. Your information is imprinted in black ink on our secure prescription pad base stock. Order quantities start at four pads so that even smaller medical practices can have an affordable Tamper Resistant Prescription Pad. They are available in both a single part and a two part fan apart set. Please Contact Us for details.
Beginning April 1st 2008 all written, non-electronic prescriptions for Medicaid outpatient drugs must be executed on tamper-resistant pads to be reimbursable by the federal government. This requirement is part of 7002(b) of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act of 2007. This new requirement as originally scheduled to go into effect on October 1st 2007 but it was delayed by six months to allow time for physicians to obtain the new tamper-resistant pads.
Stage one of the new law effective April 1, 2008 requires that Tamper Resistant Prescription Pads must contain at least one of the following characteristics:
  1. One or more industry recognized features designed to prevent unauthorized copy of a complete or blank prescription form
  2. One or more industry recognized features designed to prevent the erasure or modification of information written on the prescription form by the prescriber
  3. One or more industry recognized features designed to prevent the use of counterfeit prescription forms
All three characteristics must be present on Tamper Resistant Prescription Pads starting October 1, 2008. Our Tamper Resistant Prescription Pads meet and exceed the October 1, 2008 requirements*. The features on our Tamper Resistant Prescription Pads include:
  • Microprint Border (1, 3)
