OPRA and PRESCRIPTIONS

ATTENTION!!! IMPORTANT PRESCRIPTION INFORMATION

 

Prescribers failing to enroll in NYS Medicaid will impact patients’ ability to obtain their medications.

 

Effective October 1, 2013, a pharmacy will NOT be able to fill any prescription written for an individual with Medicaid where the prescriber is not enrolled in NYS Medicaid.  This applies to both new prescriptions and refills.

 

Prescriptions written by prescribers that are not enrolled in NYS Medicaid will deny at the point-of-service.   A pharmacist cannot override a rejected transaction if the prescriber is not enrolled.
