Updates to the Medi-Cal Learning Portal

April 21, 2022

Effective April 22, 2022, the Medi-Cal Learning Portal (MLP) has been updated. Whenever a MLP user enters a National Provider Identifier (NPI) in one of the five NPI fields on the Registration or My Account/Profile web pages, the system will check the validity of the NPI and prevent invalid data from being transferred to the Medi-Cal Provider website. When an NPI is entered in the MLP that does not meet the below criteria, the user will receive an ‘NPI Invalid’ error message. Valid NPIs must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be ten digits

  • Must contain numeric only (no letters or special characters)

  • Must begin with a one (1) or two (2)

  • Will be cross-referenced against the Approved Presumptive Eligibility Agreement on file in Transaction Services.
Note:  A MLP user may get the ‘Provider Attestation not found’ error message until the Transaction Services data tables have been updated with the Approved Presumptive Eligibility Agreement.

Providers can reference future updates to the Medi-Cal Learning Portal Provider User Guide for more information and/or register for future live webinars in the MLP on this subject.
