AMA, Manatt Health unveil toolkit to combat drug overdoses
State Toolkit to End the Nation's Drug Overdose Epidemic: Leading-Edge Actions and Strategies to Remove Barriers to Evidence-based Patient Care
The AMA and Manatt Health release a toolkit to guide states on removing barriers to evidence-based patient care.
To ensure access to evidence-based treatment, the toolkit recommends states expand treatment of opioid use disorder in Medicaid and commercial insurance and remove barriers, such as prior authorization and other utilization management policies. Additionally, treatment must address disparities and the needs of all patients equitably, including vulnerable populations. The toolkit also highlights the importance of enforcing laws on mental health and substance use disorder parity, telehealth, and access to the full continuum of pain care options. States have taken several approaches to making naloxone, the overdose reversing drug, more affordable and available. Download the Toolkit (PDF).
