Part III - Disclosures Without Patient Consent

June 26, 2019

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, and emergency disclosures. When disclosing in these situations, Part 2 Programs must still meet specific compliance requirements. 

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

  • Disclosures of Part 2-protected records which are permitted without patient consent;
  • Compliance requirements related to such disclosures (written agreements, documentation in patient charts, court orders and subpoenas, etc.); and,
  • How to respond when receiving requests for substance use disorder records protected by Part 2.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
