We published a research report on How Are Opioid Settlement Funds Being Spent, whose highlights included:
According to the $26 billion multijurisdictional settlement in July 2022 with opioid-related companies, states are required to spend at least 85% of the money on “opioid-related programs”.
However, we found that there is a wide interpretation of that standard and little oversight.
i.e. In 2023, some counties spent their opioid settlement money to buy litter pickup trucks and police cars.
We published a research report on Opioid Addiction Insurance Coverages, whose highlights included:
The Mental Health Parity Act of 2023 requires insurers to treat mental health and substance use disorder services at the same level as medical and surgical services
This means insurance providers must provide equitable coverage for addiction treatment, including opioids.
