Foley & Lardner LLP Associate Sunny Levine is quoted in the Kaiser Health News article, “Behavioral Telehealth Loses Momentum Without a Regulatory Boost,” discussing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recent proposal to codify telehealth regulation on opioid treatment programs.

While this proposal only affects part of the sector and leaves unaddressed the process for individual providers to register to prescribe buprenorphine, Levine said the new rules “get us at least a little bit closer to where we need to go.”
