Maryland Implements New Opioid Policy

In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) released new guidelines and recommendations for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain. Based on guidelines set by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Jai Medical Systems’ has implemented a new prior authorization requirement for certain types, strengths, and combinations of pain medications. If you are currently being prescribed a long acting opioid, fentanyl, methadone for pain, or prescriptions that are above the 90 MME daily suggestion from a provider; this new policy will affect you. Jai Medical Systems has mailed a letter to all members that will be affected by this new policy change.

For more information about the new opioid policies in Maryland, please visit our website at www.jaimedicalsystems.com. If you have any questions regarding this new opioid policy or the prior authorization requirements, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-888-524-1999.
