President Signs Bill Delaying Tamper-resistant Prescription Pad Requirement

On Saturday, September 29, 2007, President George W. Bush signed the “Extenders Law,” delaying the implementation date for all paper Medicaid prescriptions to be written on tamper-resistant paper.

Under the new law, all written Medicaid prescriptions must be on tamper-resistant prescription pads as of April 1, 2008.

CMS will issue additional guidance on this implementation delay as it becomes available.
