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. IGC Prescribing | Basic Assurance | Individual Identity | Hardware Storage - This will require the HID USB Token to be plugged into your computer at the time you e-prescribe a controlled substance.
2. IGC Prescribing | Basic Assurance | Individual Identity | Software Storage | Mobile Authentication - When e-prescribing a controlled substance, you will use your mobile device.
3. IGC Prescribing | Basic Assurance | Hardware Storage | Mobile Authentication - This is the best of both worlds, the HID USB Token and the Mobile Authentication.
For Identity-Proofing Only (Do Not Select for EPCS)
If only Identity Proofing is required, select “IGC Prescribing | Basic Assurance | Individual Identity | Software Storage | Identity Proofing Only" (Do Not Select for EPCS)
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.
