more HELP means more HOPE 

Congress can help by doing three things:  

For millions affected by Opioid addiction,

Opioids claim the lives of 115 Americans every day.   

Safety Net Health Plans serve 20 million Americans, primarily through Medicaid.

They work hard to coordinate health care for people who need treatment for opioid abuse.    

They connect with doctors to provide tools to help identify people who could benefit from treatment.    

They serve as a link between doctors, pharmacies and Medicaid enrollees to assure that opioids are prescribed and dispensed appropriately.

Pass the Medicaid and CHIP Quality Improvement Act

Pass the Overdose Prevention and Patient Safety Act or the Protecting Jessica Grubb’s Legacy Act.

Support the Stabilize Medicaid and CHIP Coverage Act

This can modernize federal privacy regulations that govern how substance abuse treatment records are shared between health plans and providers, while maintaining important patient protections.

This can assure the continuity of care for people suffering from substance abuse disorder by passing 12 months' continuous enrollment in Medicaid and CHIP.

This can extend the quality measurement requirements for pediatric care in the Bipartisan Budget Act to adults. It will help identify areas of improvement in key areas of substance abuse treatment.

Tell Congress to pass these bills and improve treatment for opioid addiction.
