HHS Proposes Changes to More Closely Align Part 2 and HIPAA


In a new post on the Covington Digital Health blog, our colleagues discuss recently issued proposed rule to implement statutory amendments enacted by Section 3221 of the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”).  Specifically, the proposed rule would harmonize certain provisions of the Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records under 42 C.F.R. Part 2 (“Part 2”) with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended, and its implementing regulations (collectively, “HIPAA”).   The post highlight specific sections of the proposed rule that would modify Part 2 in accordance with the CARES Act.
