Throughout the year, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and Conduent, the Fiscal Intermediary for Medi-Cal, conduct Medi-Cal training seminars. These seminars, which target both novice and experienced providers and billing staff, cover the following topics:
- Changes to Medi-Cal billing
- Basic and advanced billing issues
- Provider-specific billing questions
- Specialty programs such as Home Health Agencies (HHA), Hospice care and the Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) Program
Providers must register by April 11, 2017, to receive a hard copy of the Medi-Cal provider training workbooks on the date(s) of training. After April 11, 2017, the workbooks will be available only by download on the Medi-Cal Provider Training Workbooks Web page of the Medi-Cal website.
Note: Wi-Fi will not be provided at the seminar; please plan accordingly.
Providers that require more in-depth claim and billing information have the option to receive one-on-one claims assistance, which is available at all seminars, in the Claims Assistance Room.
Providers may also schedule a custom billing workshop. On the Lookup Regional Representative page, enter the ZIP code for the area you wish to search and click the “Enter ZIP Code” button. The name of the designated field representative for your area will appear on the map. To contact a regional representative, providers must first contact the Telephone Service Center (TSC) at 1-800-541-5555 and request to be contacted by a representative.
