Nashville, TN – The House Finance, Ways and Means Subcommittee will consider legislation next week requiring the Tennessee Department of Health (DOH) to identify individuals who are in the top 20 percent of prescribers of opioids in the state. After being identified and notified of the high volume opioid prescriber status, this legislation requires the prescribers to comply with certain requirements.
The legislation aims to address Tennessee’s status as second in the nation in abuse of opiates.
Under current law, the DOH monitors the 100 highest volume opioid prescribers in Tennessee. HB 1207 calls for DOH, in addition, to look at prescribers who are at high-risk based on clinical criteria, such as overdoses or dangerous drug combinations.
