e-Prescribing and EPCS in Missouri
Missouri allows e-Prescribing of both controlled and non-controlled substances. As of July 30, 2015, Missouri changed its controlled substance regulations to match the federal DEA regulations for Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS). Prescribers of controlled substances in Missouri must obtain registrations from both the Missouri Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) and the federal DEA.
