Does anyone know about what oversight issues MDs are dealing with given the opioid "epidemic"? In other words, what does my MD have to worry-about when deciding whether or not to increase my Rx? WA State seems to have a threshold of 50mg a day, but I don't know what happens to the MD who exceeds that amount. In addition, even below that limit, there's a central State office where I had to have my FamPrac file an exemption (by fax, no less, because they don't have email) for 20 mg a day. There was also a rejection at the pharmacy one day by the insurance company when I tried to fill a script "early", even-though the fill-by-date by the MD authorized it. Are these just haphazard restrictions or does anyone know if there are consistent policies and procedures?
