CS-Link Tip: CURES Update

Under CURES, the Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System, healthcare practitioners are supposed to check the designated database within 24 hours before prescribing a controlled substance to a patient the first time. In addition, they are supposed to check again at least every four months, if treatment continues with the substance.

To get to CURES from CS-Link™, go to the upper toolbar, where you have WEB ACTIVITIES. Click on State Agencies. CURES is there.

Once you’ve looked up your patient, you can document. Type ".cures."

The list of exclusions is there. For example, you are exempt from checking the database if the patient is under hospice care, or providing post-operative or emergency department treatment with a nonrefillable supply lasting fewer than five days.

If you forget your password or get locked out, email cures@doj.ca.gov or call 916-227-3843.
