Support MAT to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services!

Please help expand access to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorders by submitting comments to the Center for Medicare Services (CMS), urging the agency to require that health plans subject to the Affordable Care Act to cover MAT for opioid use disorders. This is a rare opportunity for us potentially to expand coverage for and access to MAT for patients. In reviewing the comments that advocate for coverage of MAT, CMS will count the number of individuals who have commented on this issue so every voice counts. Comments are due by 11:59 pm on Monday, December 21, 2015.
