The “New Provider” web page will include information on the following critical Medi-Cal subjects:

  • Billing Basics
  • Checkwrite and Remittance Advice Details (RADs)
  • Claim Forms and Claims Timeliness (online and paper-based)
  • Eligibility and Share of Cost
  • Links to Medi-Cal Learning Portal (MLP), Medi-Cal Subscription Service (MCSS) and Provider Enrollment
  • Provider Publications (including Frequently Asked Questions)
  • Provider Training (including Provider Training Seminar links)
  • Medi-Cal Key Contacts (Call Center, Regional Representatives, Small Provider Billing Unit)
  • Treatment Authorization Requests (TARs) and electronic TARs (eTARS)

DHCS projects a spring 2020 launch. It is recommended that providers continually check the current Medi-Cal website for updates. Providers are also encouraged to subscribe to the convenient and free Medi-Cal Subscription Service (MCSS) to ensure they receive the latest policy news and program updates immediately and regularly.
