I am an NP/PA taking the Buprenorphine training. When will the waiver form be available?
We are currently awaiting the release of SAMHSA's waiver application to permit NPs/PAs to prescribe buprenorphine. SAMHSA has estimated a release sometime during the month of February or thereafter. Upon completing the training activity, Clinical Tools Inc. will send your name to SAMHSA to confirm your completion of the waiver application. Therefore, you will not need to submit any certificates or information from this training activity to SAMHSA.
To sign-up with SAMHSA for notification of when the waiver application is available, you may access SAMHSA's Buprenorphine Waiver mailing list. Please send all inquiries regarding the release of the waiver application to SAMHSA.
