Title: Administrative Simplification: Update of Retail Pharmacy Standards (CMS-0055-IFC) 
Abstract:

This interim final rule with comment would modify the Retail Pharmacy Administrative Simplification standards to utilize verison D.0.V.201211. Among other updates, this will allow for proper recordkeeping when less than the full amount of a prescription for controlled substances is distributed by the pharmacy. This enhancement is critical for retail pharmacy in light of the Opioid Crisis.
