This is the April 19, 2018 hearing on "Tackling Opioid and Substance Abuse Disorders in Medicare, Medicaid, and Human Services Programs", held before the Senate Committee on Finance. From the opening statement of Orrin Hatch: "Today, members will have an opportunity to speak with two of the administration's leading experts on opioid-related policies about how Medicare, Medicaid, and human services programs can adapt and be improved to address the crisis, and what this administration and Congress can do to save lives together. It is my hope that members take advantage of this hearing and the expertise of our two witnesses to drill down into policies that are likely to garner bipartisan support to help this committee advance its long record of working together collaboratively. Anything less would be a missed opportunity to help individuals, families, and communities across the Nation." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Brett Giroir and Kimberly Brandt.
