Sharing SUD Treatment Records With Multiple Providers: How to Use Multi-Party Consent Forms
This resource provides guidance on filling out consent form that authorizes disclosures of substance use disorder treatment records to multiple parties in a way that complies with Part 2 and the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
- Multi-party consent forms work best when a patient wants to authorize different people to receive the same information for the same purpose.
- Multi-party consent forms should be avoided when the parties need different information for different purposes.
- When using a multi-party consent form, it can be useful to authorize disclosures between all the parties – not just one-way disclosures from a Part 2 program to other parties.
