The beginning of the end....

This is going g to make the opioid problem worse, not better! All this will accomplish is giving the corner boys more business!

BLOOMFIELD, Conn. —
Major insurance provider Cigna says it will no longer cover Oxycontin for customers in an effort to reduce opioid abuse in the U.S.

The Connecticut-based company says the changes will be made starting on Jan. 1, 2018 for its group commercial drug list.

Cigna says it is currently in the process of notifying customers who have Oxycontin prescriptions, so they will have time to discuss alternative treatment options with their doctors.

“Our focus is on helping customers get the most value from their medications – this means obtaining effective pain relief while also guarding against opioid misuse," Cigna's chief pharmacy officer Jon Maesner said. "We continually evaluate the clinical effectiveness, affordability and safety of all our covered medications as these characteristics can change over time, and we make adjustments that we believe will provide better overall value for those we serve."

Those in hospice care or who are using Oxycontin for cancer treatments will continue to have the medication covered by their insurance in 2018. Cigna says the company will consider approving coverage for the opioid if a customer's doctor determines that Oxycontin is "medically necessary."

Hasn't the doctor already made that determination by writing the prescription?

I literally haven't even heard of anyone getting anything stronger than Vicodin or Percocet in like the past year anyway. They're trying to solve a problem ten years too late.

For addicts struggling to get clean it seems like for the past 50 years no one wants to say fuck it, let them have their drugs. It's like when you've been arguing with someone for so long and you start to wonder, shit what if I'm wrong, so you argue that much harder. Not that -I- have ever done such a thing, no sir, of course not.
