Guest blogger Linda K. Riddell shows how an eye for detail and some simple calculations could prove to be a life-saver for employees that are overusing/abusing narcotic painkillers. As always, share your thoughts in the comments. —Kelley M. Butler
Your pharmacy benefits manager may produce beautiful reports and retain troops of competent staff, but it probably is not watching your group’s narcotic painkillers. Most PBMs do not utilize warning systems to flag high use or potential abuse of narcotics. Armed with a calculator and standard PBM reports, though, you can spot major problems and get something done about them.
