Correction: Provider Orientation

July 18, 2017

This article corrects the time of the Provider Orientation published in the June 2017 and July 2017 Medi-Cal Updates. The in-person Provider Orientation for providers applying to become a Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) provider will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Sierra Health Foundation (Sacramento) on August 22, 2017. The previous article is corrected below.

Medi-Cal providers applying to become a Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) provider are required to attend a Provider Orientation per Welfare and Institutions Code (W&I Code), Section (§) 24005(k). The Family PACT Provider Orientation provides an overview of the Family PACT Program, provider enrollment process, program standards and benefits and client eligibility and enrollment.

Solo or group providers or primary care clinics are eligible to apply for enrollment in the Family PACT Program if they currently have a National Provider Identifier (NPI) and are enrolled in Medi-Cal in good standing.

The medical director, physician, nurse practitioner or certified nurse midwife responsible for overseeing the family planning services to be rendered at the site to be enrolled is eligible to certify the site. Site certifiers shall sign a statement affirming responsibility.

Effective May 1, 2017, the Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) Program has implemented a new Provider Orientation process. The Family PACT Provider Orientation is delivered in two parts. Part one consists of an online orientation that must be completed prior to attending a part two in-person orientation. Medi-Cal providers who wish to enroll in the Family PACT Program will be required to complete both the online orientation and attend the in-person orientation. The Family PACT Provider Orientation is open to all site staff.

Complete the orientation process by following three simple steps:

  1. Visit: http://www.ofpregistration.org/ to register and create a profile in the Office of Family Planning Learning Management System (LMS). Once your profile has been set up, you are ready to proceed with the orientation.
  2. Complete part one of the orientation. Part one must be completed in order to register for the (part two) in-person orientation. Print the Certification of Completion when you have completed the online orientation.
  3. Complete part two by attending the in-person orientation. Register through the LMS and select an in-person orientation session. Site certifiers must attend the in-person orientation and are required to present photo identification during registration.
