Last year several dentists submitted waivers regarding the e-prescribing mandate implemented on January 1, 2020. Those waivers were for a designated period to be no more than 12 months.
Dentists wishing to obtain or continue waivers to the e-prescribing mandate requiring all providers, including dentists, to submit all prescriptions via an approved electronic prescribing platform, must submit a new waiver
for review by the Iowa Board of Pharmacy. The Board will review waivers
during their next meetings on November 16-17 and December 16. Waivers
must be submitted no later than Friday, October 30 to be considered during the upcoming meetings.
