We print California Controlled Substance Rx Pads and Medicaid and Medi-Cal Rx Pads for all states. Among other changes to California prescribing law, California Senate Bill 151 requires, starting January 1, 2005, that prescriptions for Schedule II-V medications be written on a prescription form that meets California security standards and must be obtained from a state designated security printer. HB Fast Print
is a California approved security printer.
Our California Approved Secure Rx Pads contain all of the required security features, including:
Fraud Prevention Characteristics
- One or More Industry-Recognized Features Designed to Prevent the Unauthorized Copying of a Completed or Blank Prescription
- One or More Industry-Recognized Features Designed to Prevent the Erasure or Modification of Information Written on the Prescription by the Prescriber
- One or More Industry-Recognized Features Designed to Prevent the Use of Counterfeit Prescription Forms
The California controlled substance security prescription form must be used for all written controlled substance prescriptions, as currently required by Health and Safety Code section 11162. This requirement includes those controlled substance prescriptions written for Medicaid and Medi-Cal outpatients.
The California controlled substance security prescription forms, purchased HB Fast Print meet and exceed the CMS requirement as put forth by the U.S. Department of Justice.
The board encourages prescribers to use the California controlled substance security prescription form for all prescriptions to minimize fraud and ensure prescriptions are written on the proper form regardless of drug or provider. An added benefit of using the California controlled substance prescription form is that prescribers carry only one prescription pad rather than 3 different pads.
Prescribers can purchase separate tamper-resistant prescription pads for use when writing non-controlled medications for Medicaid and Medi-Cal outpatient prescriptions as long as the form satisfies the minimum CMS requirements.
HB Fast Print is approved by the Department of Justice and the State Board of Pharmacy as an Approved Security Printer.
