    “Because compounded medications are not reviewed by the FDA for safety or efficacy, these products may pose unnecessary risks for injured workers and therefore are not considered first-line therapies within workers’ compensation treatment guidelines. Express Scripts proactively addresses compound use through physician and patient education and our prior authorization capabilities,” said Dr. Nelson.
    Millions of people die form FDA approved medications, that a fact.
    Side effects of FDA approved meds cost billions in just ER admissions yearly. Not to mention, countrywide opioid addiction epidemic costing workers comp industry billions. Compounding is still under 1% of workers comp spending.
