The Center of Excellence for Protected Health Information

Funded by SAMHSA, the Center of Excellence for Protected Health Information (CoE-PHI) develops and disseminates resources, training, and TA for states, healthcare providers, school administrators and individuals and families to improve understanding and application of federal privacy laws and regulations, including FERPA, HIPAA, and 42 CFR Part 2, when providing and receiving treatment for SUD and mental illness.

There is often confusion about the ways in which 42 CFR Part 2 (“Part 2”), the regulations protecting the confidentiality of substance use disorder, applies to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) providers. Many buprenorphine and naltrexone providers are not subject to Part 2 at all. This training will provide an overview of the applicability of Part 2 in different MAT settings, including emergency departments and primary care practices. It will review the general requirements of Part 2 and explain issues such as how MAT providers may interact with prescription drug monitoring programs and how may they communicate with patients’ families after an overdose. It will also introduce the SAMHSA Center of Excellence for Protected Health Information.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe key components of the Federal confidentiality regulations, 42 CFR Part 2, recent updates, and proposed updates.
  • Describe special issues for OTPs and MAT prescribers under Part 2
  • Describe SAMHSA Center of Excellence for Protected Health Information

As supporters of #MedicationAssistedTreatment, we understand the dangers of allowing methadone – a Schedule II narcotic – to be distributed at local pharmacies. 
ACT NOW by telling Congress to protect the #OTP standard of care & our communities: #PNAP
