Part I – Application in the Health Center Setting

March 5, 2024

This is part 1 of 3 in the What’s New with Part 2: SAMHSA and OCR Update Confidentiality Requirements for Substance Use Disorder Records webinar series. To register for the series, click here

Access the on-demand webinar series 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.

In this first webinar, Feldesman 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 the related compliance requirements; and
  • Dispel the top myths about Part 2 compliance.
