January 20, 2020

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has received numerous inquiries regarding submitting claims using Proprietary Laboratory Analyses (PLA) codes. DHCS currently does not have the capability to process claims using PLA codes and is diligently working on system changes for the implementation of PLA codes. DHCS appreciates your patience during this time and apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.
