In advance of the transition of pharmacy services to Medi-Cal Rx starting on Jan. 1, 2021, the Department of Health Care Services recently launched a training registration application on the Medi-Cal Rx portal for Medi-Cal prescribers and pharmacies.

Registration is the first step toward full utilization of the secure provider web portal, which includes the tools for delivery and management of consumer services. The secure provider web portal includes key functions for providers and prescribers such as: 

  • Prior authorization information and submittal instructions 
  • Beneficiary eligibility look-up 
  • Web claims submission, activities, and inquiries 

Training instructions can be found in the Medi-Cal Rx web portal and training registration article on the Pharmacy News Page, and registration information is available on the Medi-Cal RX page. Click “Register” in the upper right-hand corner. 

Hospitals are encouraged to register early so their training is complete and active for use on Jan. 1, 2021. To receive Medi-Cal Rx updates by email, click here.
