More Part 2: If you are a Part 2 provider, you may want to update your consent form based on the new rules; at least that part of the new rules is likely to survive any comments.

The big change in Part 2 doesn't revise the current requirement that no disclosure can be made without specific patient authorization; rather, it allows the consent form to generally describe other providers to whom the information may be disclosed, presumably to allow integrated providers to share the information for treatment and other legitimate purposes. However, the patient may be able to obtain a list of all disclosures to those individuals and entities who received the information pursuant to the general description of the recipient.
