    How to Apply for a Waiver

    Physicians

    SAMHSA reviews waiver applications within 45 business days of receipt. If approved, you will receive a letter via email that confirms your waiver and includes your prescribing identification number.

    Waiver applications are forwarded to the DEA. DEA regulations require your prescribing identification number to be included on all buprenorphine prescriptions for opioid dependency treatment, along with your regular DEA number.

    If you have not received confirmation of receipt of your application, or if it has been more than 45 business days since submitting it, contact CSAT by email: infobuprenorphine@samhsa.hhs.gov or call 866.287.2728.

    Other Approved Prescribers

    Apply

    NPs and PAs may upload copies of their training certificates on the Waiver Notification Form. NPs and PAs who have completed the 24 hours of required training may seek to obtain a DATA 2000 waiver for up to 30 patients by completing the Waiver Notification Form. Effective February 27, 2017, SAMHSA will only accept electronic submissions of the NOI.

    These waiver applications are forwarded to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), which will assign the NP or PA a special identification number. DEA regulations require this number to be included on all buprenorphine prescriptions for opioid dependency treatment, along with the NP’s or PA’s regular DEA registration number.

    SAMHSA shall review waiver applications within 45 days of receipt. If approved, NPs and PAs will receive a letter via email that confirms their waiver and includes their prescribing identification number. 

    Qualifications

    To qualify for a waiver to treat patients with Opioid Use Disorder, NPs and PAs must:

    • Be licensed under state law to prescribe schedule III, IV, or V medications for pain
    • Complete no less than 24 hours of appropriate education through a qualified provider
    • Through other training or experience, demonstrate the ability to treat and manage OUD
    • If required by state law, supervision or working in collaboration with a qualifying physician to prescribe medications for the treatment of OUD may be required.

    Please ensure that your state regulations allow you to prescribe buprenorphine and other medications to treat OUD before you apply for the waiver.  Some states may have overriding state legislation that will prevent NPs from prescribing these medications even if Federal law allows it.

    Overview of Legislation

    Physicians

    The Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) specifies training is necessary for physicians to obtain a waiver to engage in office-based treatment of opioid use disorders using drugs approved by the FDA on Schedules III, IV, and V. This course addresses those requirements using a curriculum approved by CSAT/SAMHSA and ASAM, who is one of the national organizations named in the DATA 2000 legislation as eligible to prepare and administer these courses.

    Nurse Practitioners & Physician Assistants

    On July 22, 2016, President Obama signed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) into law. CARA authorizes qualified NPs and PAs to become waivered to prescribe buprenorphine in office-based settings for patients with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) for a five-year period expiring in October 2021.    

    To qualify, NPs and PAs must: 

    • Be licensed under state law to prescribe schedule III, IV, or V medications for pain  
    • Complete not less than 24 hours of appropriate education through a qualified provider
    • Through other training or experience, demonstrate the ability to treat and manage OUD  
    • If required by state law, be supervised or work in collaboration with a qualifying physician to prescribe medications for the treatment of OUD

    HHS' announcement on November 16, 2016, enables NPs and PAs to immediately begin taking the 24 hours of required training. For the full HHS announcement, click here.
