The Medicare Value in Opioid Use Disorder Treatment demonstration is slated to launch in April 2021. The Value in Treatment initiative will create two new payments for opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment services. The four-year demonstration program will serve up to 20,000 fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries diagnosed with OUD. Beneficiaries dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid can also be served through the Value in Treatment demonstration. The participating provider organizations will establish an OUD care team and use the team to furnish or arrange for OUD treatment services, including medication assisted treatment (MAT) in the outpatient setting . . .
