The SUPPORT Act takes sweeping aim at the opioid crisis, focusing on numerous aspects of opioid prevention, treatment, and recovery and expanding various types of coverage, use of telemedicine, and electronic prescribing, among other things.

This webinar will highlight important parts of the new law as it pertains to SUD treatment providers and how the law will potentially impact profitability and treatment offerings, including provisions that:

  • impose new, criminal penalties for kickbacks in the recovery industry (including what some may feel are common industry practices);
  • require a special registration for telemedicine services for patients that lack access to an in-person specialist; and
  • partially repeal the restrictions for “Institutions for Mental Disease” allowing Medicare/Medicaid providers more than 16 beds to treat mental health and SUDs.
