PE4PW: Use of Paper Application Extended in Select Cases

January 3, 2018

The automated web portal for the Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women (PE4PW) program implemented April 1, 2017. As a part of the implementation, providers were notified they must submit a new Qualified Provider Application and Agreement for Participation in the Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women (PE4PW) Program (MC 311, Rev. 02/17) form before assisting PE4PW applicants and submitting PE4PW eligibility transactions. Also required is completion of PE4PW Provider Computer Based Training.

For an indeterminate period qualified providers who have continued to enroll recipients using the paper form, Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women Program Application (MC 263), may continue to use the paper process until their enrollment into the electronic program is finalized.

Qualified providers who have not submitted a new MC 311 and/or who have not completed the computer based training will be sent reminder letters informing them of these requirements.

A copy of the MC 311 and other helpful information about the transition to the automated PE4PW enrollment process is available on the Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women page of the Medi-Cal website.

Questions concerning enrollment, computer based training and other Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women issues can be sent to PE@dhcs.ca.gov.
