I receive many questions regarding the transition to Medi-Cal Rx (a new California Medicaid program for processing pharmacy claims). The Department of Healthcare Services has just announced its Medi-Cal Rx training program for pharmacies and prescribers. If you bill Medi-Cal, I strongly suggest that you take advantage of this resource.

The training consists of three sessions and will cover important Medi-Cal Rx changes for pharmacy providers and prescribers. Topics that will be covered in these sessions include the following:

  • Session 1: Medi-Cal Rx Implementation and Changes Affecting Providers (includes background information and changes affecting pharmacy providers and prescribers);
  • Session 2: Point-of-Sale (POS) Technical and Operational Readiness;
  • Session 3: Claim Submission & Finance Information (includes changes affecting pharmacy providers and prescribers in terms of web claim submissions along with an overview of the Finance Portal).
