Reprinted with permission from the CDA

CDA is actively engaged in the Legislature’s effort to address the state’s flawed new prescription-form requirements. Under AB 149 (Cooper, D-Elk Grove), introduced in January, implementation of the requirement that prescription forms include a unique serialized number would be delayed to a date no later than Jan. 1, 2020, as determined by the Department of Justice. It also imposes new requirements for the forms and allows prescriptions written on noncompliant forms — those approved as of or prior to Jan. 1, 2019 — to be considered valid and eligible to be filled until Jan. 1, 2021. AB 149 is currently pending in the Senate after Assembly approval last week. CDA anticipates the governor will sign the measure by the end of the month. Due to its urgency status, the bill would be effective immediately.

Dentists have reported to CDA that pharmacies have rejected their prescriptions due either to forms that are out of date or are missing required elements. All prescriptions have been for controlled substances, which must be on tamper-resistant forms printed by California-approved printers and containing California-specific pre-printed elements.
A list of approved prescription pad printers can be found at:

CDA’s newest subsidiary, The Dentists Service Company, officially launched its services to CDA members this summer. TDSC was established to support dentists with the business side of dentistry, specializing in practice management advising and group purchasing services.
CDA formed TDSC in response to members’ strong interest in CDA pursuing a management services company to help members be more competitive and efficient in an ever-evolving profession, while ensuring all clinical-care decisions and practice ownership remain with dentists.
TDSC’s practice management services take a comprehensive approach to practice advising, marketing and human resources. Member-clients work with TDSC experts as an extension of their team to build a strategic action plan geared toward their own practice goals and vision.
