Clinicians Eligible for Reimbursement of Suboxone/Buprenorphine Training

Monday, May 14, 2018

Clinicians who take an online course on providing suboxone/buprenorphine therapy in their practices can qualify for reimbursement through June 15.

The DATA 2000-Qualifying Buprenorphine Training, administered through an online CME provider with a curriculum developed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, takes approximately eight hours to complete and can be taken in segments. Upon completion, clinicians will receive a DATA 2000 waiver, which will allow them to provide the evidence-based and highly effective suboxone/buprenorphine therapy in their practice for patients affected by the opioid epidemic.

Reimbursement is only offered through June 30, and is available through a grant awarded by the Health Resources and Services Administration to the Duke University School of Medicine.
