September is Pain Awareness Month

September is Pain Awareness Month

CMS is committed to reducing opioid misuse by promoting person-centered care that encourages safe and effective pain management including opioid and non-opioid pain treatments. Medicare Part B helps pay for the following services that may help your patients manage their pain:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Manual manipulation of the spine (when medically necessary)
  • Behavioral health services like depression screening

Prescription opioids, including hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine, codeine, and fentanyl, can be used to help relieve moderate-to-severe pain.
