Step 3: Submit your name and email address.

Step 4: You should receive an email that contains a link providing access to the physician registration wizard.

Step 5: The physician registration wizard application has five pages.

5A: Read these instructions. They’re important.

5B: “My Details”: Submit your full name, phone number, driver’s license number and driver’s license audit number.

5C: “My Certifications:” Enter a valid Texas Medical Board License number, attach a scanned copy of your Texas Medical Board License and list the specific qualifications you possess that authorize you to be eligible to prescribe low-THC cannabis to patients with intractable epilepsy.

5D: “Addresses”: Enter your primary clinic name and physical address, including the county, as well as the clinic’s mailing address.

5E: “Signature”: Check all appropriate acknowledgement/attestation boxes and type your full legal name at the bottom of the page and click “submit.”

Step 6: DPS will send a confirmation email with a tracking number, and the department will review your application and verify your qualifications. The verification process can take up to 10 business days.

Step 7: You should receive a registration approval email that provides a hotlink to access the CURT system.

Step 8: Click the link in that email and create your username, password and security questions.

Step 9: Use CURT to register patients and treatment plans.

How to Add Treatment Plans

Step 1: Make sure your patient is a permanent resident of Texas. Gather the last five digits of your patient’s social security number, as well as the last five of the patient’s legal guardian if necessary.

Step 2: Your treatment plan must include: the patient’s name and date of birth; their prescribed dosage; the means of administration ordered; the total amount of low-THC cannabis required to fill the patient’s prescription; and how you will monitor patient’s symptoms, tolerance and reactions.

Step 3: Acquire a secondary approval by a fellow CURT-registered physician, and note the physician’s CURT username; he or she is not required to have contact with the patient. It should be noted that a patient can see a CURT-registered physician solely for the purpose of receiving a CBD oil prescription, while retaining their existing relationship with their primary physician/neurologist.

Step 4: To fill the prescription, patient (or guardian) will contact the licensed dispensing organization by phone to confirm the order details and set up a time for pickup at the dispensary or schedule a delivery.
