Section 1135 Waiver & Emergency Medi-Cal Provider Enrollment

On March 23, 2020 CMS responded to California DHCS’s Telehealth Waiver request. Check out the details here: Section 1135 Waiver

Based on this waiver response and the granted flexibilities, on March 24, 2020, the Provider Enrollment Division of DHCS sent out an email outlining a streamlined enrollment process for providers seeking enrollment to assist Medi-Cal beneficiaries with the National COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.

Providers who enroll using this streamlined process will not be subject to some of the requirements and will be enrolled for 60 days, retroactive to March 1, 2020.
