Providers cannot bill Medi-Cal or CHDP for Medi-Cal-covered mental health services (for pharmacies and labs only) and CHDP services rendered to children and adolescents enrolled in the Health Plan of San Mateo on or after July 1, 2010. As of July 1, the health plan will be responsible for reimbursing providers for such services.
Effective for dates of service on or after July 1, 2010, Health Plan of San Mateo is expanding its covered services by including the following:
- Medi-Cal-covered mental health services for pharmacies and labs only
- Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) program
Members will not be affected by this change. Only provider billing will change.
