Reminder: Recipient Eligibility Verification

September 6, 2019

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) would like to remind providers that they are advised to verify eligibility for Medi-Cal recipients on the date of service, even if eligibility was previously verified for the month. Certain programs require eligibility to be verified on the date of service, such as the Medi-Cal County Inmate Program (MCIP).

For more information about recipient eligibility verification, providers may refer to the “Recipient Eligibility Verification” heading on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page of the Medi-Cal website. The FAQs page can be found under the References tab or under the Featured Links section on the home page of the Medi-Cal website.
