- How can we send additional verifications for pending applications?
Verifications can be submitted via fax, mail, in-person, or uploaded to the Covered CA website.
- Is the DPC fax line the best avenue for sending in documents for cases pending at the FRCs?
Yes, the DPC fax line is the best avenue for Community Based Organizations (CBOs) to send in verifications.
- Why are many consumers who applied through Covered CA now getting new paper applications?
There are several reasons for sending a paper application. Covered CA allows customers to submit applications with minimal information. We have received a large number of referrals that only contain a name and address and no other data needed to make an eligibility determination. We’re also receiving referrals that include individuals that are required to have a separate case and need to submit a separate application.
- Would the Health Care Options consider any way to allow consumers to make their Medi-Cal plan selection?
Consumers can attend an HCO presentation at their local FRC and select a health plan. Medi-Cal Choice Forms are then sent to the state for processing. Consumers can also receive their health plan packet by mail.
- When will Medi-Cal dental benefits be available for adults?
May 2014. Details are still pending.
