TCG Season 3 Episode 9 Opioid Crisis and Increase Prosecutions


In this critical episode Sean is joined by Robert Liles, ESQ, and renowned opioid expert Dr. James Shear to discuss the ongoing crisis in America, increases in regulatory oversight, and prosecutors' focus on criminal prosecutions... Prescribers of narcotics need to be on-guard to ensure they are taking all necessary precautions to ensure patient compliance as well as their own.

It's no longer just a matter of determining what's in a patients' system but what isn't... diversion is a significant problem and providers have an obligation to ensure total compliance. The episode also covers how and when to discharge non-compliant patients and what providers need to do to cover their assets!

The increase in data-driven and "medical necessity" audits by government investigators and commercial payor special investigative units for billing presumptive and definitive urine drug tests and urine drug screens continue to plague practices, laboratories, and health systems across the country.
