42 CFR Part 2 Compliance: Disclosure Exceptions

August 16, 2018

Disclosures to Auditors, Qualified Service Organizations, Law Enforcement, and Courts

The 42 CFR Part 2 (“Part 2”) regulations, promulgated and enforced by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), protect the confidentiality of certain substance use disorder records, providing those records with more stringent protections than HIPAA. 

Under Part 2, there are a limited number of exceptions to the patient consent requirement for disclosure, including exceptions for disclosures to auditors, qualified service organizations, law enforcement and courts.  When disclosing in these situations, Part 2 Programs must still meet specific compliance requirements.  For example, auditors and qualified service organizations must agree in writing to certain compliance obligations.

In this final webinar, FTLF attorneys will provide an overview of:

  • To whom Part 2 Programs may disclose substance use disorder records without patient consent;
  • Under what circumstances Part 2 Program may disclose substance use disorder records without patient consent to auditors, qualified service organizations, law enforcement and courts; and
  • How to properly disclose substance use disorder records.

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