#PNN_Band Aid Money

The Medical Board of California is reminding physicians that the fee charged to maintain the Controlled Substances Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES) is set to increase from $6 to $11 for licenses that expire on or after July 1, 2021 (pursuant to AB 3330).

Most board licensees will see a $22 CURES fee at the time of license renewal, due to the biennial renewal cycle. The fee covers the reasonable regulatory costs of the Department of Justice for operating and maintaining CURES, a critical element in the state’s effort to address the growing danger of opioid addiction stemming from prescription drug abuse.

The fee will then decrease to $18 for licenses expiring on or after July 1, 2023. For more information about CURES, visit: https://oag.ca.gov/cures.
