E PRESCRIPTIONS



New York is the first state to require that all prescriptions be created electronically and to back up that mandate with penalties, including fines and imprisonment, for physicians who fail to comply. Practitioners are mandated to electronically prescribe both controlled and non-controlled substances effective March 27, 2016.

However, there are a number of exceptions in which a practitioner may issue an Official New York State prescription (ONYSRx) form, oral prescription or a fax of an ONYSRx.
