NAM Physician Officers Encourage Continued Safety Measures Related to COVID-19

Important Reminders for Jan. 1, 2021

  • Complete BME Requirements With Our Prescribing Course
    State law requires physicians who renew their license in 2021 to complete a two-hour prescription course by Dec. 31, 2020. TMA's ACCME-accredited "Appropriate Prescribing in Tennessee" is available 24/7 online. The course helps prescribing physicians and clinicians understand and adhere to guidelines that keep patients safe and protect themselves from inadvertently contributing to prescription drug abuse. TMA is offering a special COVID-19 relief rate this year: $49 for members and $99 for non-members for the remainder of this year. All CME credits for 2021 license renewals must be obtained by today, Dec. 31. Click here for details on the CME requirement, and register for TMA's proper prescriber course.

  • e-RX Controlled Substance
    Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, any prescription for a Schedule II, III, IV or V controlled substance must be issued by the prescriber as an electronic prescription to the pharmacy unless the prescription falls under one of the exceptions. See the TMA Law Guide topic Prescriptions for more details on this requirement.

  • Renewed ABN Form CMS-R-131
    Due to COVID-19 concerns, CMS extended the deadline for use of the renewed ABN Form CMS-R-131. The renewed ABN will be mandatory for use on Jan. 1, 2021, and may be used prior to the mandatory deadline. The ABN form and instructions are here.
