FTCA coverage for health center providers to dispense naloxone to non-patients --NEW!! 

09-01-2022 14:55

Dear colleagues--

Health centers and providers are eligible for FTCA coverage if they dispense naloxone to individuals who are not patients of the health center if they meet the following criteria:
1) the service must be provided at a health center site or at an offsite location in the community served by the health center where the health center is providing care, whether in-person or through telehealth;
2) the activity must be conducted on behalf of the health center and not as part of a contractual arrangement between a health center and a third party; and
3) the service must be available to all members of the community.

The health center should maintain a record of each encounter to the extent practicable, including the service(s) provided, the location where services were administered, the name of the provider(s), and the date and time. Where possible, the record should also identify the individual who receives the health service. This coverage is available from August 17, 2022 to August 16, 2023 and it may be extended by HRSA in the future

Please reach out with any questions.
