Patients of Bluegrass Pain Consultants in Louisville, Kentucky and LaGrange, Kentucky are left without pain medication this week.

These events have left many wondering why the clinics were raided. Bluegrass pain consultants was a prescriber of opioid pain medication. It is unknown whether or not this is related to the reason for the raid, however, laws on prescribing opioid pain medication are strict and many providers have run afoul of regulations and mandatory procedures for these prescriptions. Other cases of government involvement in the past with medical clinics have sometimes involved Medicare and Medicaid billing practices and insurance fraud.
