Partner Bio

MEDENT has partnered with IdenTrust to provide identity proofing and issuance of digital certificates used to digitally sign and electronically send DEA prescriptions.

Any MEDENT provider that will do EPCS (Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substance) must perform the Identity Proofing process, as well as select an "Unaffiliated Hardware" option and digital certificate by clicking the BUY button below.  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.

Choosing Your Certificate

For EPCS Prescribing

MEDENT provides three options:
1. HID USB Token: This will require the HID USB Token to be plugged into your computer at the time you e-prescribe a controlled substance.  On the next screen, select “IGC Basic Assurance Unaffiliated Hardware - EPCS Prescribing”
When at the selection titled, “Please Select The Storage Device For Your Certificate”, select “HID USB Token”. 
If renewing your certificate, select either “SafeNet USB Token use existing” or “HID USB Token use existing” depending on which device you already have. 

2. Mobile Authentication: When e-prescribing a controlled substance, you will use your mobile device. On the next screen, select “IGC Basic Assurance Unaffiliated Hardware - EPCS Prescribing with Mobile Authentication”. 
When at the selection titled, “Please Select The Storage Device For Your Certificate”, select “Browser”.

3. HID USB Token and Mobile Authentication: This will get you both the HID USB Token and the Mobile Authentication. On the next screen, select “IGC Basic Assurance Unaffiliated Hardware - EPCS Prescribing with Mobile Authentication”. 
When at the selection titled, “Please Select The Storage Device For Your Certificate”, select “HID USB Token”.

For Identity-Proofing Only

If not doing EPCS and just doing Identity Proofing, select “IGC Basic Assurance Unaffiliated Software 1 Yr - Identity Proofing Only” 
 

Important Information

In the case where hardware is issued, ONLY THE SUBSCRIBER OF THE CERTIFICATE SHOULD HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THEIR TOKEN – In all cases, 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 hardware loss or disclosure or compromise of the private key or any certificate related password to anyone other than the subscriber.
