The CMS’ Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program (IAP) Substance Use Disorder webinar was on Monday, December 14th, 2015 from 3:30 – 5:00 PM ET. This webinar focused on the impact of the opioid crisis on Medicaid beneficiaries. We discussed different approaches and initiatives that state Medicaid programs were implementing to reduce prescription drug abuse, prevent overdose and increase the availability to substance use disorder treatment.  Specifically, several states discussed their efforts using pharmacy benefit management strategies to effectively mitigate opioid abuse and overdose, especially involving methadone; their experience with using and operationalizing their prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP); and their implementation of a public health approach to the epidemic, including provider education.
