E-prescribing Mandate Effective Date Extended

Esq. Stephen B. Hanse

On Friday, March 13th, Governor Cuomo signed legislation into law (S.2486 (Hannon)/A.4274 (McDonald) – Chapter 13 of the Laws of 2015) which postponed the implementation date of the State’s E-prescribing mandate one year from March 27, 2015 until March 27, 2016.

NYSHFA/NYSCAL, together with the Medical Society of the State of New York and the New York State Society of Physician Assistants, led the effort in support for this legislation to ensure providers were afforded additional time to facilitate a seamless transition to an E-prescribing system in an effort to best protect residents and ensure the continued delivery of high quality care.
