MEDENT EPCS ID Proofing/Certificate Site

Any MEDENT provider that will do EPCS (Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances) must perform the Identity Proofing process, as well as purchase a USB token and digital certificate by clicking the BUY button below. The USB token must be used for a provider to digitally sign and transmit a controlled substance electronically. To complete your identity proofing you will need to provide your name, address, phone number, date of birth, Social Security number, a credit card number in your name, and your driver's license. It takes about a week from the time you complete the process on this site to the time you receive your token in the mail.

Please note:
ONLY THE SUBSCRIBER OF THE CERTIFICATE SHOULD HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THEIR TOKEN - THE DIGITAL CERTIFICATE IS YOUR FORM OF IDENTIFICATION, SIMILAR TO YOUR PASSPORT OR DRIVER’S LICENSE. Under the IGC Certificate Policy, it is our responsibility as an Authorized Certification Authority to revoke the certificate in a case of loss or disclosure of the private key (Password) to anyone other than the subscriber.
