HHS Proposes New Protections to Increase Care Coordination and Confidentiality for Patients With Substance Use Challenges

New Proposed Rule to Implement the Bipartisan CARES Act Legislation
Today, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, through the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), announced proposed changes to the Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Patient Records under 42 CFR part 2 (“Part 2”), which protects patient privacy and records concerning treatment related to substance use challenges from unauthorized disclosures. Specifically, today’s proposed rule increases coordination among providers in treatment for substance use challenges and increases protections for patients concerning records disclosure to avoid discrimination in treatment.

Advocacy Update

Act Now to Urge Your Members of Congress to Repeal Section 510 in the Labor-HHS Appropriations Bills

As Congress is working to pass a final federal budget before the end of the year, we need your help to urge Congress to finally repeal Section 510 from the Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) Labor-HHS appropriations bill.

For the fourth year, the US House of Representatives has repealed Section 510 from its Labor-HHS appropriations bill, and for the second year the Senate draft, Labor-HHS bill also removed Section 510 from their bill. We need you to write your members of Congress to ensure the ban remains out of the final version of the bill. Section 510 has been a barrier to moving forward with a national strategy on patient identification, and this is the year we must ensure its repeal.

AHIMA needs your help to reach out to your members of Congress and urge them to support the repeal of Section 510.

Help Students With a Professional Practice Experience

All students attending CAHIIM accredited HIT/HIM/HIA programs in the State of Missouri are required to complete clinical hours. The MOHIMA Board is reaching out to our members to see if anyone would be interested in hosting a student during their Professional Practice Experience (PPE). By submitting your name, you are not committing yourself or your facility to hosting a student. You are simply submitting your information as a potential clinical site.

There are many variables to the PPE assignment, and we know there are processes and policies that facilities must adhere to. Therefore, your information will be shared with the Program Directors/ students, and both sides can communicate as to whether the facility can provide the training/shadowing the student needs. 

Click the button below for more details and to submit your information.  We understand that circumstances can change. In the event that you are no longer able to or are interested in hosting students for a PPE, please submit an update through the Contact Us form.
