Exclamation new rules:275 Patients per doctor

http://www.npr.org/sections/health-s...ioid-addiction

Just announced today. Finally a beginning of recognizing the importance of medication-assisted treatment and opening it up for more patients to be served. IMO there should be no limit, it is like saying drs can only treat 275 patients who have diabetes, that will never happen, but we can still rejoice in the opportunity of this treatment becoming more accessible. It is progress.

Thanks nan! I'm trying to see if there are 'strings' attached as there were some in earlier talks of increasing the limit. I haven't found any yet, so maybe that's a good thing!

This is great news!
