“The Opiod Crisis: What Employers Need to Know”

Dr. Joseph Lee – Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation
Bob Poznanovich – Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation
Sherry Welliver – Mercer

Almost every day we see something in the news about opioid abuse. Employers are facing tremendous challenges stemming from increases in opioid abuse among their employees and family members. Employers are looking for insights into strategies they can implement that are designed to help these individuals address the issues involved including underlying employee productivity issues.

We’ve assembled a panel to help us better understand the scope of this crisis and how to evaluate steps that might be right for your organization. Our discussion will include:

  • Defining the Opioid Crisis problem
    • Scope of the issue and demographics
    • Impact on costs/productivity/society/family
  • Overview of Available Options
    • Typical employer group coverage
    • Where to obtain service – inpatient, outpatient, group and individual
    • PBM initiatives
    • EAP resources
    • Centers of Excellence
  • Barriers to Consider
    • Time-off issues
    • Coverage considerations (Rx/Treatment facility)
  • Supporting employees and dependents in recovery
  • How to begin the discussion and set up an action plan
