    With corporate offices located near Chicago Illinois and with affiliated manufacturing facilities located in cities across the United States,
    Micro Format manufactures medical prescription paper using the latest technologies to prevent accurate unauthorized document duplication with photocopiers, scanners or through the use of digital photography.

    In 2008, in an effort to eliminate Prescription Fraud, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) implemented a comprehensive tamper resistant Rx Script Program.
    The reason Medicaid requirements were put in place is simply to prevent Medicaid prescription fraud. Medicaid loses millions and millions of dollars annually due to forged or altered prescriptions. By making it harder for patients to alter or forge prescriptions, which affects the sale of illegal drugs, it is anticipated that Medicaid can save a significant amount of money. Every Doctor should be concerned about forged and altered prescriptions since it is their signature that appears on the script. Forged and altered prescriptions affect everyone with higher insurance costs as well as higher state and federal taxes.
    Full compliance with the rules and regulations set forth in the The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) program is now mandatory.

    All MEDICAID Prescriptions MUST be written on Tamper Resistant Paper.
    To comply, all Medicaid Scripts must contain One or More industry-recognized features from each of THREE CATAGORIES of Security as specified by CMS.

    Micro Format and Secure Guard Prescription Paper Products
    meet and exceed Medicaid Tamper Resistant Requirements for all three categories.

    In addition, Micro Format, Inc., is an approved manufacturer of Secure Prescription Paper
    in every State in which approval is required.

    It is important to note that copier technology is ever changing. Thus messages hidden on Rx Paper Products will appear most of the time. However the "VOID" message cannot be guaranteed to appear 100% of the time on 100% of the copiers or scanners on the market today.

    What IS IMPORTANT is that Micro Format Prescription Paper cannot be accurately duplicated such that a pharmacist will mistake a copy for an original.
