New Jersey Prescription Blanks (NJPBs) Notice of Final Extension

The Division of Consumer Affairs (Division) is granting a final extension through November 2, 2014 for prescribers to issue prescriptions on the old prescription blanks (blue on the front).  Effective November 3, 2014, all prescriptions must be issued only on the new prescription blanks (green on the front).

Through November 2, 2014, practitioners may write valid prescriptions on either the old or new prescription blanks.  Patient prescriptions originally written/issued on or before November 2, 2014 should be accepted and filled.

Starting November 3, 2014, practitioners must use the new blanks to issue written prescriptions for their patients.  Prescribers are being encouraged to use new prescription blanks once they have received them.

This additional 45 days is to assist those who are experiencing delays in obtaining the new prescription blanks.  Prescribers are being reminded to order the new prescription blanks.  If you are asked about how to locate printer vendors, a list of approved printer vendors is available on the Division's website at http://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/njpb.
