About

Inspired by efforts in Massachusetts and Texas, GetWaiveredNE is a statewide initiative by the Nebraska AHEC network focused on increasing the number of clinicians in Nebraska delivering evidence-based buprenorphine treatment for opioid-use disorder. A DEA waiver is required to provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT). GetWaiveredNE is here to help you get waivered, and start providing this life-saving treatment.

The Process

01

Take MAT Waiver Course(s)

Depending on your medical license, you will need to complete 8 or 24 hours of coursework. Find the free courses for Medication Assisted Treatment here

02

Complete your Notification of Intent (NOI) Form

Once you have completed the MAT coursework, complete the NOI form online and submit it to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for review.

03

Forward your Certificate of Completion to SAMHSA

You will receive a Certificate of Completion by email after you are finished with all the waiver course hours. Email this certificate to SAMHSA.
