Under California law, all individuals practicing in California who possess both a state regulatory board license authorized to prescribe, dispense, furnish or order controlled substances and a Drug Enforcement Administration Controlled Substance Registration Certificate (DEA Certificate) must submit an application to register for the Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES) by July 1, 2016. The California Medical Association (CMA) has compiled a list of educational materials to familiarize physicians with the registration process and key features of the newly upgraded system, CURES 2.0. These resources include tips on how to register for CURES 2.0 and an on-demand webinar that walks users through that process. These resources are available at www.cmanet.org/cures . To register with the new automated system, visit http://oag.ca.gov/cures . Physicians who experience problems with the new system should contact the DOJ CURES Help Desk at (916) 227-3843 or email@example.com . Providers are also encouraged to report these technical issues to CMA's member service center at (800) 786-4262 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
