Know When Short- or Long-Term Use of PPIs Is Appropriate

You'll see more focus on reining in inappropriate use of PPIs (omeprazole, etc)...due to new expert guidance and payer restrictions.

Washington State's Medicaid won't cover more than 2 months of a PPI per year without a prior auth. Other payers will likely consider similar limitations.

This isn't surprising. Many patients use PPIs longer than they need to...and chronic use is linked to fractures, C. diff, pneumonia, etc.
