Manufacturers, Distributors and Physicians in the Crosshairs of Opioid Litigation

2020 Alliance sponsor feature article courtesy of MagMutual

According to data from the National Vital Statistics System, approximately 70,237 overdose deaths occurred in the United States in 2017.1 Drug poisoning deaths have outnumbered deaths by firearms, motor vehicle crashes, suicide and homicide.2 Against the backdrop of this public health crisis, some predict that opioid litigation will look like the tobacco litigation of the 1990s3 – and pharmaceutical companies, distributors and individual physicians are getting caught in the crosshairs.

In early 2019, Purdue Pharma agreed to pay the state of Oklahoma $270 million rather than face trial on charges of misleading marketing practices and misrepresentation regarding Oxycontin.4 Many state and local jurisdictions are seeking to recover some of the costs associated with combatting the epidemic. Other companies entangled in litigation include Johnson & Johnson and CVS. According to Bloomberg Law, “In all, more than 1,800 state and local governments have filed opioid-related lawsuits. Penalties and settlements could run into the tens of billions of dollars, rivaling big tobacco payouts of the 1990s.”5

Although the medical community has implemented guidelines for safer prescribing in recent years, individual physicians are also finding themselves in this wave of litigation. Physicians are often faced with a dilemma: balancing the need to provide compassionate and safe care to patients in pain with the risks associated with prescription pain medications. The Federation of State Medical Boards developed a model policy that addressed fears about treating patients with opioids, stating:

Physicians should not fear disciplinary action from the Board for ordering, prescribing, dispensing or administering controlled substances, including opioid analgesics, for a legitimate medical purpose and in the course of professional practice, when current best clinical practices are met.6

Nonetheless, there has been a significant increase in litigation against prescribers.

In 2016, a St. Louis jury issued one of the first mega-verdicts in an opioid-related malpractice claim. The case was filed by Brian Koon, a city parks worker who became addicted to prescription opioids. Over the course of three years, Mr. Koon was prescribed 37,000 pills for lower back pain. At one point, the prescription totaled almost forty pills a day with three different types of opioids. Mr. Koon filed suit against the doctor who prescribed the medication, and after years of litigation, he won. The jury awarded Mr. Koon $1.4 million with an additional $1.2 million to his estranged wife. The jury also awarded $15 million in punitive damages against the prescriber and the hospital where he was employed.7

In another case, The Supreme Court of West Virginia held that prescribers could be held liable for their patients’ addiction.8 Twenty-nine individual patients filed eight separate civil actions alleging that three pharmacies, a physician and other medical providers negligently prescribed and dispensed controlled substances, causing them to become addicted to and abuse the controlled substances. The court decided that, although the patients were responsible for their own addiction and had engaged in illegal acts to obtain controlled substances, the providers also engaged in questionable activities that may have been a factor in causing the addiction. Ultimately, the court allowed the patients to sue providers and allowed juries to apportion fault to both patients and providers for causing the addiction.9

Physicians can also be held liable when a patient overdoses on a prescribed medication. In 2015, a California physician was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to thirty years in prison. She was accused of ignoring “red flags” about her prescribing habits, including the overdose of a patient in her clinic and receiving nine phone calls in less than three years from authorities informing her that patients had died with drugs in their system.10 Witnesses told jurors that the physician agreed to give patients powerful opioids without asking follow-up questions even after some – including an undercover agent posing as a patient – told her about their drug addictions.11

Strategies for Reducing Risks Related to Opioid Prescribing

In its report, Relieving Pain in America, an IOM task force recommends twelve best practices measures12:

  1. Recognize that chronic pain is a disease in its own right.
  2. Promote and enable self-management of pain.
  3. Address gaps in knowledge and competencies related to pain assessment and management.
  4. Avoid negative attitudes about people with pain, and stereotyping and biases that contribute to disparities in care.
  5. Develop educational approaches and materials for people with pain and their families that promote and enable self-management.
  6. Provide consistent and complete pain assessments.
  7. Use opioid therapy for chronic non-cancer pain only when safer and reasonably effective options have failed.
  8. Provide patient education and obtain informed consent when using opioid analgesics.
  9. Monitor during the use of potentially abusable medication.
  10. Avoid excessive reliance on opioids, particularly high-dose opioids for chronic pain management.
  11. Utilize available tools for risk mitigation, such as the state Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.
  12. Utilize a medication use agreement.

Message from 2020-21 NCMGMA President Amanda McKinney

Hello, NCMGMA Members!

Here we are, approaching the end of 2020 and I believe it’s fair to say most everyone is looking forward to 2021! It is truly amazing to see how everyone has pulled together to help one another and this can best be seen in our organization just by viewing the questions and responses on the listserv. This communication tool provides us access to hundreds of members and may be one of the best resources we have.

A human body consists of vital organs, bones for structure and stability, and a nervous system for voluntary and involuntary actions. The way every part of the body works together is fascinating and we all understand if there is a major failure in the body, everything else is unlikely to function at its best. I see NCMGMA as one body. Our organization is much like the human body. We have our vital organs: our Committee chairs and members, Board of Directors and Alliance Sponsors. We have our members, the backbone of the organization, without whom the body would collapse. THM, our management company, is the nervous system, if you will, because they have their finger on the pulse of EVERYTHING NCMGMA! Should any of these major parts fail to function or exist, our organization would begin to fail. For that reason, I believe it especially important to give thanks and credit where credit is due.

Thank you to Steve Parker for his leadership during one of the toughest years we have all encountered as healthcare professionals. On that note, I would like to thank ALL of the past Presidents. Your leadership and service to the board has been a selfless and admirable effort. To our Board of Directors, everything we do is done as a team. The input from every person on the board helps us grow, learn and move forward not only as an organization, but as individuals as well. We could not steer this ship without the wisdom and experience of this very talented group.

To our Alliance sponsors, THANK YOU for your dedication to our organization each year. NCMGMA values the opportunity to collaborate with you in opening the doors to services our members need. We could not exist without your unwavering support to our mission and vision.

And last, but certainly not least, thank you to our members. You all are the bones of this organization. From the mountains to the coast, you keep NCMGMA strong!

As other Presidents before me have done, I am working with the board to focus on specific goals coming into this role. Most important is to continue to find ways to strengthen the organization through its mission and vision. With extensive input from our Leadership Council in the organization, we have developed mission statements for the next 1, 3, and 5 years. These statements embody our goals for the short term and long term. We will continue to focus on what sets us apart from other organizations, how we can collaborate with and complement other professional organizations, strengthen our relationships with state leaders, identify what our members deem as ‘value’ for their membership and explore best avenues to provide that value.

Our mission statements are as follows:

  • Year 1 – 2021: NCMGMA is an actively engaged organization with strong leadership presence that emphasizes connectivity with local chapters.
  • Year 3 – 2024: NCMGMA is an organization that is recognized as a leader for practice management, through an innovative approach to connection with members, innovative education opportunities, and access to other organizations.
  • Year 5 – 2026: NCMGMA is a financially solid, diverse and inclusive organization offering personal and professional development for established and emerging practice management leaders in North Carolina.

We will meet our vision by following through on actionable goals we have set utilizing not the skilled hands of a few, but many of our volunteers throughout the organization. We will be calling on every member to provide feedback through surveys as we seek to understand what the needs are across our state, understanding that those needs vary from one practice to another. Keep an eye on our bi-weekly NCMGMA News Highlights to learn of new ways we are looking to connect across the state!

In closing, I want to say how humbled I feel to serve this organization. Next year marks the 50th Anniversary of NCMGMA and we will take every opportunity to celebrate this milestone. We have some important changes in the upcoming year: E/M coding changes, Managed Medicaid, and there are certain to be new developments with COVID. Our board and committees will continue to work hard to make NCMGMA your best and most valuable resource. Throughout 2020 we may have felt like we were on an island by ourselves many days, but looking back, I can see we have navigated new obstacles and tough times TOGETHER. Heading into 2021, we will continue this journey, ready to face whatever challenges meet us.

Yours respectfully,

Amanda McKinney
2020-2021 President
North Carolina Medical Group Management Association (NCMGMA)

NCMSF Financial Recovery Program Payout Increases

Independent practices eligible for state funds through the NCMS Foundation administered Financial Recovery Program (FRP), now may receive an increased maximum payout of $160,000 for tier 1 practices and $120,000 for tier 2 practices.

Learn more about practice eligibility requirements and what COVID-19 related expenses qualify for reimbursement at the FRP webpage here. The deadline to apply for these funds is Nov. 30, so please act today.

The NCMS Foundation has been charged by the NC General Assembly with administering this program and is required to distribute all the funds to eligible practices by the end of the year. As applications have been received, the payout has been adjusted to ensure all funds are equitably dispersed to those in need. Please spread the word to colleagues who may qualify.

The NCMS lobbying team worked closely with the NC Academy of Family Physicians, the NC Pediatric Society, the NC College of Emergency Physicians, the NC Association of Physician Assistants, the NC Obstetrics and Gynecology Society and the NC Dermatology Association in order to secure the state appropriation that funds the FRP.

Don’t forget PPE! The NCMS Foundation also received a $5 million appropriation to purchase and distribute personal protective equipment (PPE) to independent practices.

Even if you currently have adequate supplies, it makes sense to stockpile these products for future needs. Learn more and order your PPE today by clicking here.

Be prepared with:

  • Practice NPI
  • Provider NPI(s)
  • Receipts / Invoices of allowable expenses
  • Bank account information

You may not claim reimbursement for expenses already paid for through the federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) or CARES Act Provider Relief Program.

Eligible expenditures include, but are not limited to, payment for:

  • Clinical staff Covid-19 specific expenses – payroll and benefits
  • Administrative staff expenses (only for hours dedicated to COVID-19)
  • Telehealth equipment cost- computers, cameras, hotspots, etc.
  • Infection control costs- PPE, thermometers, cleaning/disinfecting/sanitizing cost, etc.
  • Renovations/cost to accommodate social distancing or improving ventilation (plexiglass installation, HVAC updates, HEPA filters, etc.)
