Does naloxone prescribing result in discrimination?

I keep hearing anecdotal reports of people being prescribed naloxone, filling the prescription, and later experiencing discrimination (refusing to write a policy) from an insurance company, typically a life insurance company.

I have not been able to have direct contact with anyone who experienced this or get the name of an insurance company engaging in this kind of practice.

I’m involved in a couple of Michigan advocacy groups that would be interested in taking action if specifics could be identified. We’ve got lines of communication with legislators and state departments.

If you are able to provide any information on this type of discrimination in Michigan, please comment below or email me at jfschwartz(at)
