DHCS Releases Report to the Legislature on the LEA Billing Program

As part of a requirement to submit annual reports to the California Legislature on the state of the LEA Medi-Cal Billing Option program, DHCS issued their first report in several years on March 29, 2016.

Information in this most recent Report to Legislature dates back to 2012, but also includes some data on 2013 and 2014.

The report covers a wide range of topics, including a comparison of California’s reimbursements under the billing program to that of other states, barriers to program maximization as identified by the LEA Ad-Hoc Workgroup, progress toward identified goals, and a timetable for working toward future goals.
