Connecticut Opioid Abuse Laws

Connecticut State Medical Society Opioid Resources

Backgrounder: Medicaid & Opioids

Current Limits

  • Current limit: Seven-day initial limit (adults) and five-day limit (minors)
  • First policy: Gov. Dan Malloy (D) signed House Bill 5053 into law on May 27, 2016. This legislation limits the first fill prescription of opioids to seven days. Prescriptions can exceed seven days if a doctor determines that the acute or chronic pain condition requires it. The legislative also limited opioid prescriptions for minors to seven days.[16]
  • Second policy: Gov. Dan Malloy (D) signed House Bill 7052 into law on June 30, 2017. This bill reduced opioid prescriptions for minors from seven days to five days.[17] At the bill's signing ceremony, Gov. Malloy made the following statement: "Opioid addiction and prescription drug abuse is a disease that is impacting nearly every community and people of every background. It is a complex crisis that does not have one root cause, nor does it have simple solution, but we need to do everything in our power to treat and prevent it. Our work on this front will not be finished until our communities and our families are no longer struggling with the grave costs of this illness."[17]
