Abstract

Key PointsQuestionDid treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD) among Medicaid enrollees change from 2014 to 2018? FindingsIn this exploratory serial cross-sectional study using data from 1 024 301 Medicaid enrollees in 11 states, the prevalence of medication treatment for OUD increased from 47.8% (138 918 of 290 638 enrollees with OUD) in 2014 to 57.1% (301 499 of 527 983) in 2018. There was substantial variation across and within states in any use and continuity (for 180 days) of medications for OUD by age, race/ethnicity, eligibility group, behavioral health comorbidity, and rural vs urban residence. MeaningFrom 2014 through 2018, use of medications for opioid use disorder increased among Medicaid enrollees in 11 US states, but the pattern in the other states is not known.
