Health Market Science subject matter expert Daniel Schofield
will deliver a session on prescriptive authority, new CMS rules for Part D, and prescriber verification on Thursday, June 26.

This is a topic that hits on a relevant issue for every pharmacy in the U.S. – managing data in a more complex and regulated environment. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released rules that will require the verification of prescriptive authority in 2015, standards that may negatively affect a prescriber’s Medicare enrollment and subsequent reimbursement. The CMS regulation and expected tightening of rules covering prescriptive authority puts increasing amounts of revenue at risk for retail pharmacies with potential fines and unreimbursed claims. Schofield will provide details on prescriptive authority, CMS’s standards, and practical strategies to manage this challenge.
