I was at urgent care last night and the doc printed out my CURES report and asked me about the amount of opiates I'm taking. My question is can she contact my doctors about this report? Or do doctors put your name on a list to red flag prescriptions? And what can she do with the report now that she has accessed it?
Yes, they can call your Drs to make them aware if you are getting drugs from multiple sources. They can also red flag you to other Urgent Cares and ER's as a possible drug seeker. I'm not sure what CURES is but it sounds like it is similar to what we have in my state. We have a database where all controlled substances you have filled are recorded and can be accessed by Drs, UC and ER's and they can see if you have Rx's filled from other Drs or from several sources. My pain Dr pulls one up at every visit to see when and where I have had all my opioids filled. It does help to prevent Dr shopping.
