CMS Seeks Volunteers for EPCS Input

CMS is seeking applicants by August 30, 2023, for a new Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) Program Prescriber User Group.  Volunteers will provide input on educational materials and the usability of the prescriber portal for the CMS EPCS Program. CMS EPCS program requirements apply to all controlled substance prescriptions filled under Part D plans (including Medicare Advantage).

Applicants for this voluntary group are expected to commit approximately 10 hours divided over a 12-month period. For the User Group, they are seeking applicants who represent various specialties, practice locations (e.g., urban and rural), and prescribing patterns. Physicians as well as their representatives such as office administrators are encouraged to apply. Interested parties need to submit an application through this form or by contacting the EPCS Service Center by August 30, 2023, at 8:00 pm ET.
