Walorski sponsors bill named for slain South Bend doctor to address opioid epidemic

By South Bend Tribute on 5/10/2018

The South Bend (IN) Tribune (5/10) reports that Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) on Wednesday “introduced a bill aimed at combating the opioid epidemic.” The Dr. Todd Graham Pain Management Improvement Act “aims to reduce overprescribing of opioids by looking at ways to expand the use of non-opioid alternatives in Medicare,” requiring the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services “to conduct a study and submit recommendations to Congress on improving access to non-opioid pain management treatments,” the Tribune explains.
