On Jan. 30 from 3-4 p.m. (PT), The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will host a webinar to provide guidance for health plans and hospitals on the changes to network provider requirements.

Earlier this month, DHCS implemented new requirements  for network provider status, impacting eligibility for directed payment under the Hospital Fee Program. While the department has granted certain flexibilities for state fiscal years 2017-18 and 2018-19, these new changes are significant and will become effective on July 1, 2019.
