HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt announced on Nov. 13 that the department, through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is proposing rules to adopt new standards to advance the use of electronic prescribing (e-prescribing) for formulary and benefit as well as medication history transactions used under the Medicare prescription drug benefit.

The Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 requires CMS to adopt final standards for e-prescribing.
