September 20, 2017

On September 7th, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, in collaboration with Public Health Solutions, released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to expand access to buprenorphine treatment in primary care. Over $1 million in total annual funding will be provided through this RFP for primary care practices to use a Nurse Care Manager (NCM) model to expand access to buprenorphine treatment. Applicants will hire an NCM to manage and coordinate care for patients receiving buprenorphine and designate a buprenorphine physician champion to guide the integration of buprenorphine treatment into the primary care practice.
