Opioid Package To Be Considered Week of June 11 in US House

By billupsj

The US House is slated to hold what some refer to as “Opioid Week” beginning on June 11 when more than 60 opioid-related bills will be considered by the full House. In the Senate, many addiction-related bills are on the table, but floor action has yet to be scheduled.  CARA 2.0, a follow-up to the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, has been opposed by the AMA due to the bill's proposed opioid prescription limits, education mandates, and requirement that doctors check databases before prescribing certain drugs.
