Prescribers Must Check CSRS for Workers’ Comp Cases

As of Nov. 1, 2018, health care providers are required to review the Controlled Substances Reporting System (CSRS) when prescribing a targeted controlled substance to an injured worker with a workers’ compensation claim. Health care providers must document in the injured worker’s medical record the review and any potential contraindications to prescribing a targeted controlled substance found in the CSRS.
