Leveraging Medicaid to Address Opioid and Substance Use Disorders in Maine

This is a report from the Urban Institute that provides an overview of the role Maine's Medicaid program is playing and could play in addressing Maine’s opioid crisis and substance use disorders (SUDs) more broadly, in the context of the recent expansion of Medicaid.

This analysis consisted of an expedited review of available public information and data, key informant interviews, and evaluating promising Medicaid initiatives implemented elsewhere to inform Maine’s policy debate over effective strategies to address the opioid crisis and SUDs. Ten state policy options are recommended within this document.
