Other striking findings included specialists being 35% more likely to prescribe an opioid to patients aged 60 to 90 years than to those aged 16 to 29. Findings also showed that they were 22% less likely to give women an opioid prescription than men; 23% more likely to give an opioid prescription to a Medicare patient than one with private insurance; and 30% more likely to hand such a prescription to a Medicaid patient than someone with private insurance.
