Effective December 29 - Phase 2 of Prescribing Opioids for Acute Pain

Effective December 29 - Phase 2 of Prescribing Opioids for Acute Pain

Starting on December 29, 2017 prescribers are required to include the ICD-10 code on prescriptions for opioids to treat acute pain. Please confirm that your EMR and/or e-prescribing vendor(s) can support automated placement of the ICD-10 code on prescriptions. If your EMR system is not able to automate the code by December 29, 2017, you can simply add the ICD-10 numbers into the comment section on the prescription or write it in manually. 

See our Prescriber Resources page for a complete reference guide, prescription requirements, video, FAQs and more.
