Abstract:

The objective of this audit was to determine whether selected DoD military treatment facilities MTFs overprescribed opioids for DoD beneficiaries. DoD beneficiaries are active duty service members, retirees, and eligible family members who receive health care at MTFs, which the Defense Health Agency DHA and the Surgeons General of the Military Departments oversee. In this audit, we focused on specific examples of beneficiaries who received opioids from 2015 to 2017 at Madigan Army Medical Center MAMC in Joint Base LewisMcChord, Washington Naval Medical Center Portsmouth NMCP in Portsmouth, Virginia and Joint Base Elmendorf-RichardsonJBER Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska.
