Anticipate Quantity Limits on First-Time Opioid Rxs

You'll see stronger efforts to limit initial opioid Rxs (hydrocodone, etc) reduce opioid dependence and overdoses.

Some payers, and over a third of states, now restrict first-time opioid Rxs...such as limiting to a 3- to 10-day supply or capping doses.

Defuse tension if a prior auth is needed for a longer duration or higher dose. Your patients may be unaware of the new restrictions and understandably upset.
