This webinar was held on May 23, 2023.
HMA’s 3-part New Rules in Treatment of Opioid Addiction webinar series is aimed at helping stakeholders prepare for new federal rules that will change how medications are delivered to persons with opioid use disorders. Reducing daily visits will allow persons served to engage in work, family and community activities that sustain recovery, but programs have historically relied on daily visits for revenue. With the new rules, opioid treatment centers (OTPs) have a unique opportunity to advance person-centered care. In part 1 of this series, we addressed changes in clinical and business practices, as well as payment structures that will enable OTPs to implement new treatment programs and other flexibilities to improve patient outcomes. Other parts of the webinar series examine policy and incentives in the new system.
OTP Regulatory Changes – Understand expected changes from the point of view of clinicians and providers.
Critical Action Steps – Identify what OTPs will need to do next to comply.
State Variation – Consider how to navigate new rules across states with different approaches to treatment.
