Posted October 06, 2018 06:08:54As part of its transition to a single-payer national healthcare system, the US Public Health Service is preparing for a potentially catastrophic scenario of an opioid overdose epidemic in the coming months, according to a new memo from the agency.
In an internal memo obtained by the Washington Examiner, a USPTSD official warned that the public health crisis is only going to get worse as states begin to ramp up their own coverage and expand their opioid programs, adding that states should expect to see more people seeking medical care through their state health departments.
“States have a choice to expand coverage or to shut it down.
Some will opt to close, while others will opt for more aggressive and aggressive programs,” wrote an email to staff from the USPs medicaid program coordinator, who declined to give his name.”
There are currently 5 million Americans receiving federal public assistance.
By 2020, that number will rise to 12 million, including about 9 million in Medicaid.”
The USPTFS memo said the public healthcare system has been overwhelmed by the opioid crisis and needs to do more to address the crisis.
“As we work to make sure that people in the US can access healthcare, we will be taking a comprehensive approach to addressing the crisis,” the memo said.
“We want to address as many barriers as possible to get to the people who need it, and we want to make it easier to access healthcare and get it quickly.
We will be doing more to make this happen, but we have to do it right.
The USPHS is not a magic wand, and this is not going to happen overnight.”
According to the memo, the PHS “has seen more than 3,000,000 people use opioids over the last four years, and the rate of opioid overdoses has been increasing in recent years, so it is essential that the PTSD get to work addressing the need for more treatment, treatment, and health-care professionals.”
The PHS has launched an extensive training program to assist state and local health departments, which has already seen more opioid overdose deaths in recent months.
The PTSd has also created a website to help doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals navigate the new healthcare system.
It also said the US government has created a team to help states expand opioid coverage and that the US Government Accountability Office is developing guidelines to ensure that the system will be safe for workers and patients.
In addition, the public can reach out to the US public health department for information on the opioid epidemic, which is expected to grow as states implement their own opioid coverage.
