42 CFR Part 2 Compliance: Consent & Notice

August 14, 2018

The 42 CFR Part 2 (“Part 2”) regulations protect the confidentiality of certain substance use disorder records by restricting the circumstances under which Part 2 Programs or other lawful holders can disclose the records. 

Promulgated and enforced by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Part 2 regulations provide more stringent federal protections than HIPAA.  For example, under Part 2, a patient must consent in writing to the disclosure of their substance use disorder records for purposes of treatment, payment and health care operations unless one of a limited number of exceptions applies.  Patients must receive notice that their records are protected by Part 2.

In this second webinar, FTLF attorneys will:

  • Provide an overview of the consent requirements under Part 2; 
  • Discuss strategies for incorporating the Part 2 consent requirements into your existing HIPAA disclosure form and procedure; and 
  • Review the patient notice requirements.  

The RECORDED WEBINAR is available either separately or as an add-on at check out.
