Maryland Medicaid’s New Opioid Prescription Policy
Maryland Medicaid has implemented a new opioid prescription policy in accordance with the CDC’s Prescribing Opioids Guidelines from March 2016.
Please be aware that referrals will not be issued for patients that we have not seen. Consultation with the PCP is a must before the referral is written.
Please also note that referral forms are not authorizations for procedures or certain services. Specialists must reach out to the appropriate insurer for authorization of such requests.
In light of recent events, we believe it is important to ensure that all patients and the public are aware of our Vaccination Policy.
All children and adults should receive all recommended vaccines according to the schedules published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Maryland Healthy Kids Program. For the safety of our patients, staff, and families, Jai Medical Center requires that all children and adults be vaccinated according to the mandatory recommended vaccination schedules.
While we are happy to answer questions and discuss the safety and efficacy of vaccines, if a parent or guardian chooses not to follow the accepted schedule or to delay beginning routine vaccinations for their child, we will no longer be able to service that child for primary care and will request that the family seek care from another provider.
Vaccinating children and adults may be the single most important preventative healthcare service that we perform as your medical provider and that you can perform as parents/caregivers. Please ensure that you and your child are vaccinated appropriately as recommended.

If you have any questions regarding our Vaccination Policy, please feel free to speak with your Primary Care Provider or a member of our Management team.
