HIPAA/42 CFR Description: In the substance abuse field, confidentiality is governed by federal law and regulations that outline under what limited circumstances information about the client’s treatment may be disclosed with and without the client’s consent. Determining when 42 CFR Part 2 is applicable and how to legally access information about substance abuse treatment requires practitioners to work through a series of questions, including how 42 CFR interfaces with HIPAA. This training will shed light on that interface.


Objectives:        1. Discuss HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2 key concepts and patients’ rights under both.


2. Define permitted disclosures, legal issues and enforcement mechanisms under HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2.


3. Explain how to respond to subpoenas and discovery requests.


4. Describe changes to the HIPAA Final Rule for 42 CFR Part 2.
