Question by sedcontra: Does the new health care law prohibit doctors from giving patients paper scripts?
I don’t like doctors (or actually, their staff) from calling or faxing prescriptions when they can just hand them to me. I’ve had problems with doctors not calling them in or calling the wrong pharmacy. But my child’s pediatrician told us that the new health care law prohibits (or will eventually prohibit) doctors from giving patients paper scripts. Is there any truth to this? If so, can anyone point to me where in the bill this is mandated?

That is the eventual goal, but not quite as you’ve described.
