New Emergency Rules on Reporting

Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley signs emergency rules to improve reporting of overdoses in Michigan
Requirement will help better track deaths connected to the opioid epidemic
To gain a better understanding of how the opioid epidemic is impacting Michiganders, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley has signed emergency rules that require health professionals and facilities to report overdoses, including deaths, to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. These rules take effect upon filing with the Secretary of State (Oct. 26,2018) and shall remain in effect for 6 months. 

The MOA has links below to the MDHHS Rules (PDF document), resources and the official announcement from Lt. Gov. Brian Calley. The new rules will give MDHHS more accurate records and better track the toll that the opioid epidemic is taking in Michigan. Currently, the agency lacks timely and accurate information on overdoses, making it difficult to track the epidemic, investigate increases, and target programs and interventions to areas most at risk. With these new rules in place, health professionals and facilities are required to report overdoses, including deaths, within five days of MDHHS requesting the data.

Opioid Prescribers' Legislative Alert

On December 27, 2017, the Lieutenant Governor signed into law several new requirements aimed at combating the opioid epidemic. The MOA is part of a coalition that is working with the Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to provide input from healthcare professionals in regards to the laws, regulations and systems used by prescribers. 

For MOA members, a page has been created with an overview, a link to a summary (PDF) and a link to a survey designed to get feedback from the MOA membership.
