Updating Your Identity Verification for EPCS
If you electronically prescribe controlled substances (EPCS), you must update your identity verification information prior to January 1, 2022. This identity verification process is required as part of an ID.me security update. ID.me is the identify verification services that enables EPCS within Eyefinity EHR.
Upgrading your identity verification takes only a few minutes.
Providers who don't update their identity verification information, will not be able to electronically prescribe controlled substances on or after January 1, 2022.
Gathering the required materials
To get started you'll need the following:
- Mobile phone or computer with camera (you'll need to be able to sign into the Eyefinity EHR web application on this device)
- Email address that you registered with ID.me and your ID.me password
- Photo ID (e.g., driver's license, passport, passport card, or state ID card)
- Social Security number
Upgrading your EPCS identity verification
Once you have the items listed above, here's how to upgrade your identity verification:
- Log into the Eyefinity EHR web application as a provider.

The ID.me login page opens.
- Sign in to your ID.me account with the email address associated with your ID.me account and password.
