Prop 56 Implementation: What Physicians Need to Know about the Supplemental Payments

The California Health Care, Research and Prevention Tobacco Tax Act of 2016 (Prop. 56) created new revenues dedicated to the Medi-Cal program. Physicians receive supplemental payments in both fee-for-service and Medi-Cal managed care when providing Medi-Cal services under certain CPT codes. The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), will discuss the status of distribution of both 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 funds and their distribution timelines.

This webinar also will cover eligible services, supplemental payment amounts by CPT code and tips on ensuring your practice receives the full amount of eligible funds. It will also provide information on how to file grievances on Prop. 56 funds and how the California Medical Association (CMA) can help.  

Presenters: Lindy Harrington, Deputy Director, Health Care Financing, DHCS; Ryan Witz, Assistant Deputy Director, Health Care Financing, DHCS; and Jodi Black, Vice President, Center for Economic Services, CMA
