PAVE will be implemented in multiple releases to include additional provider types and enrollment actions. The initial release includes the following provider types:

Audiologist
Certified Acupuncturist
Certified Nurse Midwife
Certified Nurse Practitioner
Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist
Chiropractor
Crossover Only Provider
Dispensing Optician

Speech-Language Pathologist

The initial release also includes specialized enrollments for applicable provider types (including clinic-based, facility-based and hospital-based enrollments) and enrollment as an ordering, referring or prescribing-only (ORP-only) provider.

For more information about PAVE and access to the PAVE Provider Portal, providers may visit the Provider Application and Validation for Enrollment page of the DHCS website. Providers can also access the PAVE Provider Portal via the new “PAVE” link located in the “Hot News” area of the Medi-Cal website’s homepage.
