AzHHA Submits Comments On Notice of Proposed Rulemaking / by AzHHA

Debbie Johnston, Senior Vice President of Policy Development

On Monday AzHHA submitted comments to the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) on its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for establishing opioid treatment and prescribing requirements. AzHHA staff and many of its members over the past several weeks worked with ADHS on the draft rules. In our comment letter, AzHHA expresses appreciation for the many revisions ADHS made in the draft rulemaking, but we also outline our continued concerns regarding elements of the informed consent process and need for additional flexibility during transitions of care.
