|Prescription pads from the AOA Order Department|
The American Optometric Association Order Department now carries tamper-resistant prescription forms that comply with all three Federal regulations for Medicaid. The new tamper resistant prescription forms are available for purchase from AOA by calling (800) 262-2210.
For prescriptions for MEDICAID beneficiaries, CMS has informed State Medicaid Directors that, to be considered tamper-resistant, a prescription pad must contain at least one of the following three characteristics below. AOA tamper resistant forms meet all three Federal requirements.
These forms are available in single sheet or two-part NCR.
Please specify “new tamper resistant” prescription forms when ordering at (800) 262-2210.
NOTE: Some states may have additional requirements for tamper-proof compliance. Please check with your state optometric association to ensure your state does not require addition prescription security measures.
Tamper Resistant Security Paper is used to help prevent tampering as well as unauthorized document duplication.
