COVID-19: Deaf and Hard of Hearing Communication Access Recommendations for the Hospital 

SAMHSA OTP Guidance: SAMHSA issued guidance allowing states with and without emergency declarations to allow Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) to provide 28 days of take-home medication to stable patients and 15 days of medication to less stable patients whom the OTP believes can responsibly manage this amount of medication.

SAMHSA 42 CFR Part 2 Guidance: SAMHSA issued guidance which allows providers to share patient SUD diagnosis information that would normally be protected under 42 CFR Part 2 in instances of a bona fide medical emergency. Usage of the medical emergency exception must be documented by providers.

CMS Guidance to Catastrophic Coverage Plans: CMS issued an FAQ clarifying that catastrophic coverage plans must include coverage of COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment under the Essential Health Benefits. CMS will waive enforcement actions against any such plan which provides COVID-19 services before patients pay the plan’s deductible, and encourages plans and states to provide such pre-deductible coverage.
