Tamper Resistant Prescription Pads
The purpose of this memo is to provide guidance on the required use of Tamper Resistant Prescription Pads (TRPP) beginning November 1, 2012. AHCCCS and its Contractors were waived from this requirement by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) through October 31, 2012. However, CMS has not authorized continuation of the waiver exemption for the AHCCCS Program. Therefore, effective November 1, 2012, AHCCCS and its Contractors are required to comply with the tamper resistant prescription pad requirement.
