As announced by the Department of Justice in April 2018, California’s Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES 2.0) is ready for statewide consultation by prescribers. As of Oct. 2, 2018, prescribers must check a patient’s prescription history in CURES 2.0 before prescribing a Schedule II-IV substance, with some specific exceptions. Refer to CDA’s article on mandatory checks for information on the exception applicable to some dentists. Prescribers who have issues accessing CURES can email the DOJ or call 916.210.3187.
