AHIP Solutions SmartBrief | May 20, 2016

Health insurers are in a powerful position to help fight prescription drug abuse, says Brandeis University's Dr. Andrew Kolodny, and a number are taking steps to do so. Cigna announced this week it will take measures to help prescribers spot, monitor and appropriately treat high-risk patients, with a goal of cutting prescriptions for opioids by 25%. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts started a similar program in 2012, eliminating 21.5 million doses of opioid medicines over three years. Reuters (05/19) CNN (05/19)
