Webinar Overview

The laws, policies and enforcement efforts arising out of the opioid crisis span many topics and jurisdictions. We spent this special 90-minute webinar briefing you on the substance every health lawyer and compliance officer should know about the response to the opioid crisis:

  • Reimbursement for substance use disorder (SUD) treatment
  • Privacy and confidentiality of SUD treatment records
  • Prescribing regulation and pitfalls
  • Telehealth and SUD treatment
  • 2018 SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act of 2018
  • 21st Century Cures Act
  • Developments around the Eliminating Kickbacks and Recovery Act (EKRA)
  • State efforts to combat the opioid epidemic
  • Multidistrict litigation (MDL) update
  • Federal civil and criminal enforcement efforts against prescribers, pharmacies, distributors and manufacturers

We also created a one-page resource for you to understand the various services available to your specific organization to work through the challenge of the opioid crisis.
