AHA Statement Before the Committee on Commerce: Improving the Coordination and Quality of Substance Use Disorder Treatment

AHA expresses strong support for legislation that would allow responsible sharing of patient substance use disorder (SUD) treatment information and prevent inappropriate and dangerous prescribing of opioids by amending 42 CFR Part 2 to align with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for the purposes of treatment, payment and health care operations.
