Fully-Informed Care: Legislation Updates Laws and Protects Privacy

Netsmart has been a strong advocate for passage of the Overdose Prevention and Patient Safety Act (H.R. 3545) in the U.S. House and a companion bill, the Protecting Jessica Grubb’s Legacy Act (S. 1850), in the Senate. The legislation would closely align decades-old 42 CFR Part 2 regulations with HIPAA, helping assure fully-informed diagnosis and treatment for persons with a substance use disorder or history of SUD treatment.

Gerald “Jud” DeLoss, Netsmart’s healthcare privacy counsel, testified on Netsmart’s behalf at the May 8 Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee hearing about the House bill. Read his written testimony here.
