An analysis by the Texas Department of Insurance shows that Texas’ use of the closed formulary
for prescription drugs in the workers’ compensations system is having a positive impact on both
Carrier’s wallets and on injured workers. Reporting on the study, www.workerscompensation.com
noted that total drug costs fell by 15%, N-drug costs fell by 80%, and prescriptions for N-drug
opioids fell 81%. The combination of lower costs and better care through less addictive prescriptions
shows the closed-formulary is working in Texas. For more information, visit here. In regard to
states which legalized marijuana, reports are that although opioid use is down, accidental poisonings
of children are on the rise.
