Step 4: To complete your prescription, select one of the following options provided:

  • Send: sends the prescription to the pharmacy electronically.
  • Send & Print: sends the prescription to the pharmacy electronically and prints out a watermarked (non-legal) copy of the prescription for your records.
  • Print don't Send: prints the prescription without sending it to the pharmacy, an option used if a patient is unsure which pharmacy they would like to use.
  • Sign don't Send: signs the medication and adds the medication to the patient's active medication list, but does not send a prescription to the pharmacy; this is useful if the patient was given a sample.

Step 5 (If controlled substance): Enter in your EPCS passphrase and token pin.
