CMS Opioids Listening Session

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a listening session for all prescribers to determine criteria that would identify an “outlier prescriber.” The Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment for Patients and Communities Act (SUPPORT Act) requires CMS to help clinicians identify abnormal opioid prescribing patterns. This session provides CMS the opportunity to hear relevant feedback from physicians. The listening session will be held on Tuesday, September 17 from 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM (ET).

Registration for the listening session, as well as more information, can be found here.
