HHS Releases New Buprenorphine Practice Guidelines, Expanding Access to Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder

New federal guidelines will mean expanded access to treatment for opioid use disorder. Those guidelines, released by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, exempt eligible health care professionals from federal certification requirements that are part of the process for obtaining a waiver to treat up to 30 patients with buprenorphine.

Practitioners must still follow the training and experience requirements in their respective licensing Act and practice within the standard of care.

***SCAM ALERT***

Licensees, we want you to be aware of an imposter phone call that targeted one of our licensees. The call appears to come from the Illinois Board of Nursing and the caller claims to be an investigator. The caller claims the licensee is facing serious criminal charges and if the licensee “doesn’t do anything in the next hour,” the licensee will then be arrested. Thankfully, the licensee hung up before the call proceeded further.

The Illinois Board of Nursing, along with all of Illinois’ professional boards, will never contact a licensee in this manner. If you receive a call like this, hang up immediately.
