This toolkit by Manatt provides promising strategies state Medicaid agencies can adopt to address the substance use disorder (SUD) and opioid use disorder (OUD) crisis in their states. It reviews strategies in 3 categories: increasing access to medication assisted treatment, promoting team-based care including reimbursement for peer services, and best practices in monitoring and evaluating interventions on an ongoing basis. The report also includes an appendix which includes tables comparing the impact of the opioid crisis across states and describing state Medicaid policies relevant to addressing the SUD and OUD crisis.
