CHDP Billing Information for Aid Code 8E

January 24, 2014

For Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) providers:

The NewsFlash article “New Presumptive Eligibility Medi-Cal Coverage for Adults,” dated January 21, 2014, announced that the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will provide temporary Medi-Cal eligibility for many individuals and families through aid code 8E while Medi-Cal applications submitted through the Covered California website are being verified.

Please note that billing with aid code 8E on a Confidential Screening/Billing Report (PM-160) claim form for CHDP health assessments and immunizations rendered to beneficiaries 19 through 20 years, 11 months of age may result in an erroneous claim denial. CHDP is aware of the problem and is working to implement a remedy. A notice to providers will be posted on the Medi-Cal website when the problem is corrected. For additional information, CHDP providers can call the Telephone Service Center at 1-800-541-5555.
