This bill is not a cure. In fact, it’s actually fuel for an already burning fire and will make the very situation she claims to want to stop, the opioid epdidemic, worse.
* Thanks, hearing this from others too
* There's accommodations for chronic pain & major illnesses
* This is already the law in 14 states
Glad she’s hearing it but she’s wrong.
The ‘accomodations’ in this plan make it impossible.
2- The mandatory UA required at all visits for pain meds and which most ins don’t cover fully or at all run anywhere from $100-$500 or more. This would have to be done at every renewal, so every 7 days.
4- (related to 3) Even the alternative- a PM attends & prescribes at ALL surgeries so as to be able to treat the patient for their pain- still creates an impossible situation.
