To prevent the certification of ineligible providers, Health Care Services should immediately develop a provider agreement for program providers.
DHCS will implement the new provider agreement via provider bulletin. DHCS conducted a public stakeholder meeting on September 22, 2014 with it becoming effective October 22, 2014.
Health Care Services provided a copy of its Drug Medi-Cal provider agreement, which is now available online.
Agency responses received are posted verbatim.
