OPIATE EPIDEMIC


THE STATE'S INSURER TASK FORCE ON OPIOID REDUCTION TUESDAY RECOMMENDED THREE TARGET AREAS OF FOCUS FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES. THOSE ARE PREVENTION. INSURERS SHOULD COVER AND ENCOURAGE THE USE OF BOTH NON-OPIOID PAIN MEDICATIONS AND ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS FOR CHRONIC PAIN. INTERVENTION. THIS IS PUTTING PRESSURE ON INSURANCE COMPANIES TO PROPERLY EDUCATE HEALTH PROVIDERS TO DECREASE OPIOID DOSAGES.
AND FINALLY TREATMENT. INSURANCE COMPANIES SHOULD HELP COVER THE COST FOR TREATMENT FOR SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER.
