SAMHSA issues final rule implementing changes to Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records regulations

Our latest Health Care Alert analyzes The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's recent final rule (the "Rule") implementing changes to the Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records regulations at 42 C.F.R. Part 2. The new Rule further amends the Part 2 regulations that were the subject of significant rulemaking published in January 2017. This Rule may not end SAMHSA's efforts to align Part 2 more closely with HIPAA.  Our Alert on this important regulatory development may be viewed here.
