As you are likely aware, the prescribing of schedule II opiates (Percocet, Vicodin, Morphine, Fentanyl, etc.) has gained much attention over the past few years. The rules and guidelines regarding the prescription of these medications continue to change and become more restrictive in allowing us to provide narcotic medications to you and other chronic pain patients.
These new rules and guidelines are being imposed by the Colorado Medical Board, CDC (Center for Disease Control), DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), pharmacies and pharmacists, and most insurance companies, including Medicare, Medicaid, and almost all commercial insurance companies.
As your providers specializing in Chronic Pain Management, we are being tasked with helping you manage your chronic pain, and we’ll continue to strive to provide this care in a humane and compassionate nature while we respond and respect the changes being imposed on us by regulatory agencies. We are committed to help you manage your pain as safely and as effectively as possible.
