Effective January 1, 2021, Indiana prescriptions for controlled substances must be transmitted electronically to the pharmacy.
DrFirst has been selected as the IDA preferred vendor for electronic prescriptions. DrFirst is offering its iPrescribe app for FREE to IDA members for the first two years, with a $10 per month fee starting in the third year.
DrFirst Customer Service
If you need help setting up your iPrescribe app, call the DrFirst help desk at 866-263-6512.
INSPECT Integration Issues
Please note that integration with Indiana's INSPECT system is causing timing issues, and our recommendation is not to have DrFirst check the INSPECT report, but rather make it a two- step process where DrFirst sends the prescription electronically, and a separate step is taken by the dentist to pull the INSPECT report.
Part of the electronic prescription setup process is proving your identity as a healthcare provider. DrFirst and similar systems use ID.Me for their customers, but ID.Me is currently experiencing delays due to the high volume of customer requests. Please be prepared for delays in this step of the process.
