Support H.R. 6 for permanent authorization for APRNs to prescribe MAT

Posted almost 2 years ago by Monte Wagner

In 2016, Nurse Practitioners have received temporary authorization to prescribe Medication Assisted Treatment for substance use disorder treatment (including Suboxone), which is set to expire in 2022. The US Congress is now in process to permanently authorize this important treatment for Nurse Practitioners and include other APRNs for 5 years in House bill H.R. 6. 

Please use the link below to contact your Members of Congress and urge that they vote YES on H.R. 6.
