ID Proofing for EPCS

Identity Verification for Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS)

Thank you for your interest in DxScript, our EPCS certified ePrescribing solution. In order to prescribe controlled substances electronically, the DEA requires two items: A one-time ID Proofing process to verify the prescribers’ identity and ongoing Two-Factor Authentication each time a provider writes a Schedule drug(s) for a patient.

Please keep in mind that we are happy to help you with any questions you may have along the way and please call us at 212-967-1944 or email us at for assistance.

If you are ready to begin the first step in this process, please proceed to purchase your two-factor authentication license and optional hard token.  Following that, you will be guided through the ID proofing process.

The DEA Rule

While many states are adopting EPCS voluntarily, some states, like New York and Maine, Connecticut and Minnesota, have mandated that all prescriptions, including Scheduled medications, must be sent electronically. DxScript® electronic prescribing is certified by EHNAC for Electronic Prescription for Controlled Substances (EPCS) as per DEA Rule (75 FR 16236, March 31, 2010) [Docket No. DEA-218, RIN 1117-AA61] Read More
