PAAS National® alerted pharmacies to the delay in enforcement of Electronic Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS) for Medicare Part D until January 1, 2023.
About Jennifer Ottman, CPhT
I began working at an independent pharmacy in high school and really enjoyed being in the health care field. I provided clinical support to improve patient care and adherence to their medications. I have played a vital role in the pharmacy industry full-time for 23 years.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and have been a Certified Pharmacy Technician since 2001. Prior to joining the PAAS team, I was a floating technician, 3rd party district chargeback specialist, and district pharmacy training coordinator. Formerly, I was also an instructor for pharmacy technician certification classes.
PAAS’ personal, one-on-one connection will help your pharmacy become more successful in dealing with tiresome PBM audits. It is a pleasure knowing that my colleagues and I can help member pharmacies.
