CMS Opioid Prescribing

CMS has released several information products that provide greater transparency on drugs prescribed in the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

The CMS opioid prescribing mapping tools are interactive tools that show geographic comparisons of de-identified opioid prescriptions filled within the United States. The mapping tools allow users to see both the number and percentage of opioid prescriptions in the Medicare and Medicaid Programs in order to better understand how this critical issue impacts states and communities nationwide.

Machine-readable opioid prescribing data files, which include the data presented in the mapping tool, are available for download in Excel.

Inquiries regarding this data can be sent to DrugListInput@cms.hhs.gov.
