Throughout the year, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and the California MMIS Fiscal Intermediary 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), Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS), Hospice Care and Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) Program
Providers must register by July 10, 2020, to receive a hard copy of the Medi-Cal provider training workbooks on the date(s) of training. After July 10, 2020, the workbooks will be available only by download on the Medi-Cal Provider Training Workbooks page of the Medi-Cal website.
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. To contact the regional representative for your area, providers must first contact the Telephone Service Center (TSC) at 1-800-541-5555 and request to be contacted by a regional representative.
