Standards for Use of Opiates in Treatment of Pain Changes in Ohio


New rules establish significant changes.

New regulations became effective late last year in Ohio, marking more change in the legal standards which control provider use of opiates for pain treatment. These regulations oust the previous law and combine standards for opiate use for non-acute pain while establishing changes to the provider approach to the use of these medications, as well as specific documentation requirements. Download this white paper for a review of these changes.
