Apple Health (Medicaid) Provider Alert

On November 1, 2017, the Health Care Authority (the agency) will implement its opioid clinical policy for all Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) clients, both through agency-contracted managed care organizations and fee-for-service. We have created a patient handout for prescribers and pharmacies to give to patients who have questions about the policy.

You may find more information regarding the agency’s new opioid policy and download the Patient handout from the agency’s Opioids page.
