Be Ready to Help More Patients Use Buprenorphine/Naloxone for Opioid Dependence
You'll hear more about the national push to expand access to buprenorphine/naloxone combos (Suboxone, etc) for opioid dependence.
New laws will allow nurse practitioners and physician assistants to prescribe buprenorphine for opioid dependence in some states...and some physicians can now treat more patients. Plus you may see fewer prior authorization requests.
This means pharmacies will get more questions about buprenorphine.
