About 70,000 Part D Medicare beneficiaries receive greater or equal to 90 Morphine Equivalent Dosage on a daily basis. This is an “extreme” dosage according to the CDC. The scoop from the Feds is that you should attempt to taper this group’s dosage! Your charts must reflect the taper attempts. The Feds are literally figuring out average Morphine Equivalent Doses per prescriber. Unlike baseball, you want to get your average DOWN!
