The opioid epidemic in the U.S. has reached a state of crisis. The surgical setting has contributed to this problem by introducing many people to opioids – estimates suggest that following surgeries, 2.9 million patients become persistent opioid users each year. However, there are tangible steps employers can take to encourage opioid alternatives for postoperative pain management.  

Attend this webinar to gain a better understanding of:

  • Actions innovative employers are taking to ensure plan participants have access to non-opioid pain management therapies and related cost savings
  • Impacts on employer costs associated with opioid use, including lost productivity and increased use of health care services
  • How the surgical setting is an appropriate place to support members in reducing their risk of becoming addicted to opioids
  • Directives that employers can give to carriers to ensure coverage of opioid alternatives
  • Why current payment structures can get in the way of non-opioid solutions and how employers can change this paradigm
