Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will discuss the latest SAMHSA and HIPAA updates which were released in January 2018 and December of 2017 respectively and will cover 42 CFR Part 2 of SAMHSA regulations, its provisions relating to substance abuse records, mental health records, alcohol abuse records and what are the proper ways to secure and release this information.

Why Should You Attend:

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation. SAMHSA's mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities.

Similar to HIPAA regulations, 42 CFR Part 2 of SAMHSA regulations cover various aspects of securing and releasing data and patient information. But it is very different from HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Privacy and Security Regulations. If your organization is working with substance abuse records or mental health records you must understand how to secure and release this information otherwise it may lead to significant civil and even criminal penalties.

This webinar will discuss how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to ensure their organization is complying with the Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) regulations (42 CFR Part 2) and how this differs from the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Privacy and Security Regulations.
