On June 11, The Pew Charitable Trusts sent a letter to the Senate Finance Committee urging members to prioritize legislation that will expand access to high-quality treatment for substance use disorder. Specifically, Pew asked committee members to pursue policies that support:
- Medicare and Medicaid coverage of all Food and Drug Administration-approved medications;
- Coverage for all levels of care defined by the American Society of Addiction Medicine; and
- Innovative treatment models that have shown promise in saving lives and improving outcomes.
