Opioid Abuse Prevention

The HFPP provides a unique opportunity for payers to combat the opioid crisis by identifying and sharing strategies to prevent prescription opioid misuse and opioid use disorder (OUD). By sharing information among payers, the HFPP aims to identify and intervene on behalf of patients at risk of opioid-related harm, as well as to target fraud, waste, and abuse in opioid prescribing.

Approaches to Combat Opioid Misuse and OUD

The three core approaches reflecting our mission of combating opioid misuse and opioid use disorder are:

Sharing resources, policies, and practices that connect patients to care that is best suited to their needs and achieves optimal outcomes, ultimately reducing opportunities for fraud, waste, and abuse related to opioids.
Identifying and mitigating potentially fraudulent, abusive, or wasteful activities related to opioids.

Engaging in innovative studies and information sharing techniques within the HFPP to identify and share effective opioid misuse and opioid use disorder mitigation strategies.
