Step 1: Register for iPrescribe

As of April 2023, the iPrescribe app will allow new or existing subscribers to register multiple providers who are new to iPrescribe under a single practice account.

This means that one person at the practice will be able to register and manage all users under a single account and credit card. Providers who register for iPrescribe for the first time, but will be registering as the only provider in their practice should refer to the first drop-down section below.

Before you sign up provider(s) under a single practice, ensure you have the following information readily available:

  • NPI number
    • Your NPI registry profile must be up-to-date. iPrescribe uses this information to validate your account. To update your NPI record visit: https://npiregistry.cms.hhs.gov/ 
    • Ensure that your state license number in your NPI registry is marked as the primary taxonomy
  • Access to your email
  • Driver’s license, or state ID for ID.me identity proofing
  • Social Security Number
  • Credit Card for your practice
