New Part D Opioid Overutilization Policies

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) implemented new opioid policies for Medicare drug plans effective January 1, 2019. The new policies include:

  • Improved safety alerts when patients fill opioid prescriptions at the pharmacy
  • Drug management programs for patients at-risk for misuse or abuse of opioids or other drugs
  • During this call, CMS experts discuss the new policies and answer questions.   

The Medicare Learning Network (MLN) will host a public training event on CMS Part D Opioid Overutilization Policies on Thursday, February 14th from 1:30-3:00pm EST.

There are several items to assist with understanding the new opioid policies, linked on the registration page.  Below are a few of these items:
