CA DHCS: Draft Physician Toolkit Now Available for Public Commment

From the CA DHCS:

On the call, we announced that DHCS would be releasing the Physician Toolkit for stakeholder comment. This toolkit has a wealth of knowledge for physicians about Cal MediConnect and the CCI, and we hope it will be useful for them in their practices and in answering questions from their patients. We appreciate your help making the toolkit as effective as possible. Please send any edits or comments on the toolkit to by Friday, July 25 at noon. Please put “Physician Toolkit” in the subject line.


You can find the toolkit here. The toolkit includes:

  • Cover letter to physicians
  • Fact Sheets on:

o    Care Coordination

o    Continuity of Care

o    Physician Services & Payments Under CCI

o    FFS Medicare & CCI

o    Contracting with Cal MediConnect Plans & Plan Contacts

  • Sample Patient Letter & FAQ document
  • How Plans Process Crossover Claims
  • Tutorial on Plan Lookup Using AEVS


We also wanted to share a link to where you can find the Cal MediConnect Notice and Enrollment Issues Tracker, which was also mentioned on last week’s call.


Thank you, and please let us know if you have any questions.
