Oregon’s Chronic Pain Task Force Approves Expanded Pain Coverage

Posted on December 6, 2018

Oregon’s Chronic Pain Task Force backed a proposal Wednesday to provide coverage for five chronic paid conditions currently not covered by the Oregon Health Plan. The proposal would expand alternative treatments for certain chronic pain conditions while limiting the use of opioids. Many chronic pain patients are complaining, and the plan is getting plenty of criticism from pain experts.

Oregon Health Authority officials estimated that about over 67,000 people would gain coverage to alternative pain treatments under the proposal and that between 600 to 1,200 patients would need to have their opioid treatments re-evaluated by their providers.
