Because blacks are more likely to become addicted like George Floyd?

Really interesting way to phrase the comparison.

Were black patients not on Medicare treated at the same rate as white patients?

They probably don’t gave data for non-Medicare patients.

Some things to remember, a decent sized chunk of Medicare patients are under 65. They’re permanently disabled. I’ll let you figure out how that relates to opioid usage.

If an individual has ever had,or has a problem with opioid addiction, they obviously will NOT prescribe one.
Does this give us a clue?

Black people generally don't like prescription opiates. This is no surprise to anyone who works in health care.

So, they want to be prescribed opioids more? Is that the end game?

Is it possible that black medicare patients attempt to abuse hospitals for opioids more than white medicare patients?

Prescription opiate abuse is vastly a caucasian problem. Opiates tend to make certain whites high as a kite, blacks not so much. They are prescribed less because blacks use it less.

Physicians prescribe medication that they want the patient to use. It's not the other way around. Also, it's harder and more expensive to get prescription opioids because they are controlled by the authorities. Blacks can get the illegal drug easier and for less money, even though it's more dangerous all the way around.

Idiot.

The board is saying it’s a good thing doctors aren’t prescribing blacks this highly addictive drug.
