The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation said it has stepped up monitoring of the millions of doses of pain pills prescribed to injured workers every year as the agency tries to control costs and fight rampant prescription drug abuse. The state-run insurance program for injured workers said it no longer covers prescriptions for controlled substances unless the provider enrolls in an automated reporting system designed to identify possible misuse of opiates, according to the Dayton Daily News.
