Screening and Enrollment


Per All Plan Letter (APL) 17-019, which has been superseded by APL 19-004, all Providers currently in IEHP's network and those looking to join the network are mandated to enroll in the Medi-Cal Program. This requirement to enroll in the Medi-Cal Program applies to all IEHP Providers, including those participating through an IPA. If a Provider currently active with IEHP fails or declines to complete their enrollment in the Medi-Cal Program, IEHP will be required to terminate their participation from the network. 


How to Enroll

The Provider Enrollment Division (PED), a unit within the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), is responsible for the timely enrollment of Providers into the Medi-Cal Program. PED now offers an improved web-based application via their Provider Application and Validation Enrollment (PAVE) portal. Please note the current PAVE release may not support specific Provider types or submissions from new out-of-state Providers. PAVE is being implemented in a series of releases to include Provider types and enrollment actions. Here is a current list of Provider types supported in PAVE.
