Passed Support

AB 1731 (Santiago, D-Los Angeles) Details

Signed by the governor on Sept. 1

AB 1731 removes the requirement for a health care practitioner to consult the Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES) database before prescribing more than a seven-day supply of buprenorphine in an emergency department (ED) setting. Providing a buprenorphine exemption from CURES lookup requirements for health care practitioners in the ED will save time and will enable patients who require treatment for opioid overdose or addiction to receive timely treatment.
