Checkwrite Pending Budget Enactment

June 29, 2020

File release of the July 2, 2020 Checkwrite (July 6, 2020 EFT settlement date) for all programs, including those previously held, is contingent upon the enactment of the 2020-2021 California State Budget.

In anticipation of the 2020/2021 State Budget enactment, Medi-Cal has completed the checkwrite process cycle for all programs. Providers will be able to access the available self-service tools, Provider Telecommunications Network (PTN) and Medi-Cal website Transaction Services, to view the checkwrite detail; however, the funds will not be released until the budget is signed and enacted. Once this occurs, the State Controller’s Office (SCO) will release the warrants. This is expected to align with the published Checkwrite schedule. Should this change, providers will be notified. Please continue to monitor the Medi-Cal website for updates.

Supplemental Claims Payment Information (SCPI) processing has been delayed and will resume after the State Budget enactment. The date of SCPI availability will be communicated in a subsequent NewsFlash update.
