When an ePrescription is sent in error or is no longer necessary, eRx enrolled providers can send a cancelation request to notify the pharmacy.

Note: The feature is only available for prescriptions sent electronically. If applicable, mark the paper prescription as discontinued or as an error.

  2. Click to select the patient from the auto-populated results. The patient's Facesheet page opens.
  3. Click Medications. The Active Medications page opens.

Cancel Prescription

  1. Click to select the medication to cancel.
  2. Click Cancel Rx. The Send Cancellation Request pop-up window opens.
  3. Click Yes to confirm. The cancel request is sent to the pharmacy.
