Are your Medi-Cal payments being delayed due to patient eligibility?
Checking patient’s eligibility can make the difference in your reimbursement. Make sure your office staff is checking your patients Medi-Cal eligibility at each visit. Circumstances change all the time, your patient may be covered by Medi-Cal one month and the following month be covered by an HMO or Commercial Insurance, if eligibility is not verified you can risk your claim payment being delayed and/or reduced. To verify your patients eligibility simply log on to www.medi-cal.ca.gov or call the Automated Eligibility Verification System (AEVS) at 800-456-2387.
