FAIR Health compiled the data to help health care providers, insurers and lawmakers better evaluate the need for treatment and addiction services and arrive at strategies to expand the range of health and social services available to those struggling with addiction, Gelburd said. The question is, how do you organize a health care system that responsibly meets the needs of this growing epidemic? she said. A sharp uptick in opioid-related overdose deaths over the past several years has led to a corresponding spike health insurance claims for drug treatments and remedies. CHART/PROVIDED We do see the crisis While the latest drug crisis shows no socioeconomic bounds, low-income households are far from immune. Downtown Dayton-based CareSource, the largest provider of Medicaid managed care services for Ohios low-income residents, recently began compiling its own database of opioid-related claims by tracking pharmacy claims, office visits, in-patient and emergency department claims in response to the growing epidemic. The data will be used not only to identify the growing number of members receiving substance abuse insurance claims services and treatment, but also members that CareSource may want to reach out to with medication-assisted treatment and counseling. RELATED: Opioid crisis persists despite funding burst We recognize the opioid epidemic and crisis that the nation is facing, and that we are facing here in Ohio, and we do see the crisis in the member populations that we serve, said Kelly Kopecky, director of behavioral health at CareSource, which has about 1.3 million Medicaid members in Ohio. About 200,000 CareSource Medicaid members have already been identified as having drug problems or substance abuse disorders, said Kopecky, who noted the number increased exponentially with the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio in 2014 under the ACA. About half of CareSource Medicaid members with drug problems joined CareSource under expansion, Kopecky said. Rising premiums Medicaid expansion now covers more than 700,000 people in Ohio, and nearly a quarter-million Ohioans have gained coverage through the ACAs Health Insurance Marketplace the federally operated health insurance exchange for private health plans sold in Ohio under the ACA. The growing number of opioid-related claims among the newly insured population touches everyone with insurance, not just those seeking treatment for opioid addiction, said FAIR Healths Gelburd, who compared health insurance to an Aspen forest, which typically grow from a single seedling.
