The webinars in 42 CFR Part 2 Compliance webinar series can be purchased individually or as part of the series. To learn more and/or purchase the full series, click here.
In developing substance use disorder services in response to the opioid epidemic, many health centers are uncertain whether they must comply with the federal substance use disorder confidentiality regulations at 42 CFR Part 2 (“Part 2”). This uncertainty occurs because whether Part 2 applies depends entirely upon how a health center provides substance use disorder services and whether a health center receives Part 2-protected records.
Health centers must regularly review their model for providing substance use disorder services to determine whether Part 2 applies. Health centers must also determine whether Part 2-protected records can be segregated or segmented to limit the applicability of Part 2 to a patient’s entire record as described in SAMHSA’s 2020 Final Rule.
In this first webinar, FTLF attorneys will:
- Guide health centers through the process of determining whether Part 2 applies to their entire health center or to certain sites, teams, or employees;
- Discuss when health centers are “lawful holders” of Part 2 records and how to segregate or segment the Part 2 records to limit the applicability of Part 2 to other patient records; and
- Dispel the top myths about Part 2 compliance.
- Compliance Officers
- Privacy Officers
- Medical Records
- Substance Use Disorder Providers
- MAT Program Directors and Staff
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- etermine whether Part 2 applies to your health center’s substance use disorder services
- Identify whether your health center is a “lawful holder” of Part 2 records
- Understand how segregating or segmenting Part 2 records can limit the applicability of Part 2 to your health center’s records

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.
