PRESCRIBING LIMITS ARIZONA


   

  • Current limit: Five-day initial limit
  • First policy: Gov. Doug Ducey (R) signed an executive order on October 24, 2016, that set opioid prescription limits for anyone insured under the state's Medicaid program or the state's employee insurance plan. The order limits the first fill prescription of opioids for adults to seven days. No opioid prescriptions are permitted for children unless they have cancer, a chronic disease, or suffer a traumatic injury.[10] "This is a preventive step, and one we hope that employers and insurance companies will follow our lead to address the scourge of addiction on the front end," said Gov. Ducey on the executive order.[10]


  • Second policy: On January 26, 2018, Gov. Doug Ducey (R) signed Senate Bill 1001, known as the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act. The legislation limited the first fill prescription of adults to five days and aligned state dosage levels with federal guidelines; invested $10 million to assist in improving access to treatment; expanded law enforcement's access to Naloxone, a drug used to reverse overdoses; enacted continuing medical education for opioid prescribers; and required e-prescribing, among other provisions. The legislation passed unanimously in the Arizona State Legislature.[11]
