Be Prepared for New Changes to Help Ensure Safe Opioid Use

You'll see new twists on existing efforts to ensure safe opioid use...more payer limits, changes in state laws, and other requirements.

Medicare Part D plans will limit initial opioid Rxs for acute pain to a 7-day supply in 2019...similar to many states and other payers.

Part D plans may also "lock in" patients to just one pharmacy and prescriber for their opioids. Expect this for certain patients, such as those getting high-dose opioids from multiple pharmacies or prescribers.
