Opioid Legislation Alert
On December 27, 2017, State of Michigan staff drafted eight pieces of legislation aimed at addressing the ongoing opioid epidemic crisis. This legislation may have an impact on the type of pain management care you receive in the future, and how that care will be delivered. We here at Michigan Medicine are working with staff in Lansing to better understand these changes and to ensure that the quality of your care remains at the highest standard possible. We will update you on these changes as we receive details in order to keep you informed about your pain management options.
