The dataset provides basic information about Fee-for-Service (FFS) providers enrolled in the Medi-Cal program. The information is based on a point in time and is expected to be updated monthly. The data were retrieved from the Provider Master File (PMF), which has been used in the claims payment process and is maintained by the Provider Enrollment Division (PED). The variables in the dataset include provider number, name, type, specialty, geographic information, etc. DHCS does not collect information on whether or not fee-for-services providers accept new Medi-Cal patients, and this dataset does not include Managed Care providers. For information about provider enrollment or updating file records, please see http://www.dhcs.ca.gov/provgovpart/Pages/PED.aspx.
The mission of DHCS is to provide Californians with access to affordable, integrated, high-quality health care, including medical, dental, mental health, substance use treatment services and long-term care. Our vision is to preserve and improve the overall health and well-being of all Californians.
