Opioid overdose risk screening program

 

Our behavioral health clinicians screen members to identify patients at risk for an opioid overdose. Any patient receiving a diagnosis of opioid dependence may be at risk. You can learn more about the opioid epidemic

 

How you can help  

 

Consider naloxone for patients at risk for an opioid overdose. Naloxone reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. Giving naloxone kits to laypeople reduces overdose deaths, is safe and is cost effective. You can also tell patients and their families and support networks about signs of overdose and administering medication.  

 

Coverage of naloxone varies by individual plan. Call the number on the member's ID card for more information on coverage. We waive copays for the naloxone rescue medication Narcan® for fully insured commercial members.
