Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) is cosponsoring legislation to decrease barriers to non-opioid pain management for those enrolled in Medicare. Senators Shelly Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Doug Jones (D-Ala.) introduced the Non-Opioids Prevent Addiction in the Nation (NOPAIN) Act in December.
“Combating the opioid epidemic requires a joint effort from federal, state, and local officials, and multiple lines of attack. The NOPAIN Act would incentivize the use of non-opioid therapies in outpatient surgical settings so that Medicare patients have access to pain management without the risk of opioid addiction,” said Senator Blackburn.
