California Healthline

Medi-Cal’s enrollment system for doctors and other health care providers, long criticized in the medical community for being complicated and slow, is getting an overdue transformation.

Paper is out, computers are in. That means doctors and other medical practitioners who want to become Medi-Cal providers — or simply need to update their existing information — will finally be able to do it online.

It is an important change, especially since the Affordable Care Act has tightened provider-monitoring requirements, said Tanya Homman, head of the Provider Enrollment Division at the Department of Health Care Services, which manages Medi-Cal.
