Help is on the way. On Tuesday, Jan. 29, an Assembly Committee moved AB 149 (Cooper, D-Elk Grove) forward unanimously. AB 149 delays secure prescription form requirements until no later than Jan. 1, 2020, and would make any prescriptions written on a form otherwise valid prior to Jan. 1, 2019 (that does not contain the unique serialized number) valid, and may be filled, compounded or dispensed until Jan. 1, 2021. The bill has an urgency clause and will take effect immediately if the Governor signs it. It still has several steps to go. We expect it to clear the floor of the Assembly in the next week. Stay tuned.
