The CARE Act

In 2018, Massachusetts lawmakers passed the CARE Act, an act that expands treatment for people who suffer from opioid addiction. Under the law, Tufts Health Direct members can:

  • Request less than the prescribed amount of a schedule II narcotic substance.
  • Return to the same pharmacy within 30 days to fill the rest of their partially filled prescription without incurring any additional costs.
