Medi-Cal Releases ORP Provider Validation Lookup Tool

Last week, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) released a beta version of its Ordering, Referring and Prescribing (ORP) Provider Lookup Tool, as required by the Affordable Care Act.

DHCS has also released a guide to assist providers in using the tool.
