MMA Senior Section to Meet Wednesday, August 24 for Program on Opioids/Heroin Epidemic
MMA's Senior Section will meet on Wednesday at MMA offices in Manchester. The program will feature Portland consultant Carol Kelly and EVP Gordon Smith discussing the recent activities of the Maine Opiate Collaborative. Any MMA member is welcome, senior or not.
The program begins with lunch at 11:30am with the program following at noon. The section meetings normally conclude by 1:30pm. The Section is chaired by Buell Miller, M.D. and staffed by Lisa Martin, MMA's Membership Coordinator. Any MMA member attending should rsvp to Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling her at 622-3374 ext. 221.
The Maine Opiate Collaborative was established in August 2015 by U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty, Attorney General Janet Mills and Commissioner of Public Safety John Morris in order to address the opioid epidemic in the state. In 2015, 272 Mainers died from accidental overdose, 1013 babies were born with neonatal abstinance syndrome because mom was on drugs and 80% of heroin users indicated that they started down the road to dependency while on prescription drugs. The Collaborative established three task forces of volunteers to address the areas of prevention/harm reduction, treatment and law enforcement. Task Force reports were presented to the public in May of this year and efforts are taking place now to implement the recommendations. Twenty-two community forums were also held with the feedback received at the forums being used to inform the Task Forces. Carol Kelly facilitated 21 of the 22 forums and will share the outcomes of these events in her talk on Wednesday.
MMA's work with the Collaborative has been supported financially with grants from the Maine Health Access Foundation (MeHAF) and the Maine Community Foundation.

Data Breach Workshop September 14th in Wiscasset
Data breaches and identity theft are being focused more and more on small businesses and professional practices. In addition to the substantial costs of dealing with the direct effects of such incursions, medical practices must also face the fact that a data breach is also a HIPAA violation.
On Wednesday, September 14th, Maine Identity Services will present a 4 hour workshop on data breaches and identity theft. The workshop will focus on how a practice can continue to function during and after a data breach, and will address what you and your employees can do before a breach that will make an enormous difference if you have a breach.
The workshop is specifically designed for managers who aren't technology savvy but who need to know:
- How do we put a plan together?
- How do we continue to function during a breach?
- Do we have to notify anyone? How quickly?
- Are we supposed to offer credit monitoring?
- What resources do we need?
Faculty will include experts who know what it’s like to have a breach and how to respond to the public and the press:
- Special Agent James Corbett, FBI, Boston Division
- David B. McConnell, Litigation Department Chair, Perkins Thompson Attorneys and Counselors at Law
- Diana Ichton Nelson, Award-winning television journalist and public relations expert
- Rob Oakley, HIS Manager, Bucksport Regional Health Center
- Jane Carpenter, Founder, Maine Identity Services
Date: September 14, 2016
Time: 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon
Place: Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission, 297 Bath Road, Wiscasset

Some Confusion Remains on New Opioid Prescribing Limits
A significant amount of confusion still exists regarding the provisions of Chapter 488 which took effect on July 29. The Governor and the Legislature were well aware that not all 16,000 patients currently receiving opioid medication in access of 100 morphine milligram equivalent (MME) would be able to be tapered immediately. Therefore, a medical necessity exception was added (to expire on Jan. 1, 2017) in addition to the provision for patients who are currently at 100 MME to be prescribed up to 300 MME until July 1, 2017. For those patients over 300 MME on Jan. 1, 2017, other exceptions may be established through state rule-making or the exception for palliative care may be considered.
Other exclusions in the law include prescribing opioid medication to a patient for:
- Pain associated with active and aftercare cancer treatment;
- Palliative care, as defined in Title 22, section 1726, subsection 1, paragraph A, in conjunction with a serious illness, as defined in Title 22, section 1726, subsection 1, paragraph B;
- End-of-life and hospice care;
- Medication-assisted treatment for substance use disorder; or
- Other circumstances determined in rule by the Department of Health and Human Services pursuant to Title 22, section 7254, subsection 2; and
- When directly ordering or administering a benzodiazepine or opioid medication to a person in an emergency room setting, an inpatient hospital setting, a long-term care facility or a residential care facility.
- Until Jan. 1, 2017, a prescriber can utilize an exception for medically necessity. In order to inform the pharmacy that it is within the law to fill a particular script over 100 MME, the prescriber should write "Medically Necessary" on the script.
Although the requirement to check the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) for a new script does not take effect until January 1, 2017, it would not be possible to know what opioid medication the patient may be receiving from other prescribers without checking the PMP. So, in effect, the PMP mandate should be observed beginning July 29th if a prescriber is not already routinely checking the PMP for new scripts for an opiate based medication. On January 1, 2017, the PMP mandate will include a first script written for a benzodiazepine in addition to an opioid.
[return to top]
Other information on the new law can be found on the MMA website at www.mainemed.com. MMA attorneys are available to present CME programs on the new law. If you are interested in a presentation at your practice or facility contact MMA's CME Coordinator Gail Begin at firstname.lastname@example.org or EVP Gordon Smith at email@example.com or by calling Gordon at 215-7461. Presentations are scheduled over the next month in Fort Kent, Patten, Damariscotta, Skowhegan, Calais and Ellsworth.
