How the US Opioid Epidemic is Impacting Employers and What You Can Do to Mitigate Its Effects to Your Workforce

Worldwide Employee Benefits Network [WEB] - Baltimore Chapter

Mar. 7, 2019
8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

The US opioid epidemic was declared a public health crisis in fall of 2017. Since that time insurance carriers, professional organizations, state and federal government entities have begun a rapid response to control the risk associated with narcotic pain medications in the general public. Many employers are watching ‘from the sidelines’ as they are under the impression that the misuse of opioid medications does not impact their workforce. In fact, the opioid epidemic is impacting individuals of all ages, socioeconomic classes and geographic areas. It will become critical for all employers, human resource officers and managers of all levels to recognize how this uniquely challenging epidemic is impacting their workforce and their bottom line.

In this session, our subject matter experts will provide a succinct review of the contributing factors to the US opioid epidemic. We will discuss how utilization reviews of claims for medical and pharmacy plans can identify risk and direct program design to support the proper use of opioid pain relievers. We will highlight solutions that have been developed by carriers and third party service providers — including drug free workplace solutions, policy development, reinforcement of EAPs and finding best in class providers to meet the needs of employees and member with chronic pain conditions. We will also reinforce how the dimensions of Wellbeing, when aligned with organizational culture, can support a workforce through recovery from this epidemic and possibly prevent long-term negative impacts to the organization and individual members.
