According to the federal mandate for tamper-resistant prescription pads, papers must meet one of three criteria by April 1. Medicaid prescription papers must meet all three criteria by October 1, 2008. Boise BEWARE currently meets two of the three criteria.

"The health care industry can have confidence that BEWARE's superior anti-copying technology keeps them compliant. Boise will continue to go the extra mile to provide the quality our customers have come to expect."
An enhanced BEWARE product is in development that will meet all three
characteristics required by the October 1 deadline. The new feature is a
coin-reactive, artificial watermark on the back of the sheet. When a coin
is rubbed over the back of the sheet, the words BOISE BEWARE will appear.
