Currently the state of Maine follows federal requirements for prescription pads as set forth by the CMS. Additionally, Maine has state legislature stating, “A written prescription issued by a practitioner in this State may contain a box in the lower right-hand corner of the prescription form a box at least 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch. The following words must appear to the left of this box: “Any drug which is the generic and therapeutic equivalent of the drug specified above in this prescription may be dispensed, provided that no check mark has been handwritten in the box in the lower right-hand corner.”

State Requirements

All states are required to meet the baseline standards set forth by the CMS. Several states have Prescription Monitoring Programs that require prescription pads to have specific security features.
