New service: WCMS offering confidential peer assistance to physicians flagged by NCMB for opioid prescribing practices

November 3, 2017

WCMS is now offering confidential, voluntary peer to peer assistance for physicians flagged by the NCMB for opioid prescribing practices.  The purpose of this assistance is to offer emotional support to put you at ease about the NCMB inquiry, educational information to better understand why you were flagged, and suggestions for improving your prescribing practices if there are indeed issues. This is a voluntary program. If you have been flagged by NCMB and wish to talk with one our volunteer peers (Dr. Blake Fagan and Dr. Don Teater), please contact WCMS CEO Miriam Schwarz directly at 274-2267 x1312 and we will help arrange a meeting for you. Your inquiry and meeting will be held in strict confidence.
