Pharmacy Law Changes Effective July 1

Changes in the laws governing pharmacies in California go into effect July 1. Security prescription forms for controlled substances now must include the preprinted address of the prescriber. In addition, licensed health care facilities, as well as some clinics with 25 or more licensed physicians or surgeons preprinted on the security prescription form, are not required to preprint the category of licensure and license number of their facility or clinic.
