Throughout the year, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and the DHCS Fiscal Intermediary (FI) for Medi-Cal, conduct Medi-Cal training seminars. These seminars, which target both new 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 subject matter such as Home Health Agencies (HHA) and Home & Community-Based Services (HCBS), Hospice Care Program, Medi-Cal Resources 101 and Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) Program

Providers must register by January 24, 2020, to receive a hard copy of the Medi-Cal provider training workbooks on the date(s) of training. After January 24, 2020, the workbooks will be available only by download on the Medi-Cal Provider Training Workbooks webpage 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 request a custom billing workshop presented by a regional field representative. To schedule the regional representative for your area, providers must contact the Telephone Service Center (TSC) at 1-800-541-5555 and request to be contacted by a regional representative.
