AATOD Board Meeting Features Visits With Lawmakers, ONDCP, DEA, and SAMHSA

February 11, 2018

The annual board meeting last December of the American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence (AATOD) was more than just a meeting. Eight board members conducted a number of visits to Capitol Hill, educating Congressional representatives and staff. A key focus of these visits was getting reimbursement for Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) from Medicare Part B (which covers nonhospital treatment), said AATOD president Mark Parrino, MPA. “This will be a slow and labor-intensive process, but I believe that at the end, we will be successful,” Mr. Parrino told AT Forum.
