Welfare and Institutions Code 14018.2 requires providers to make a good faith effort
Welfare and Institutions Code 14018.2 requires providers to make a good faith effort to verify the identity of a Medi-Cal recipient by matching the recipient’s name and signature on their Medi-Cal card with a valid California driver’s license, ID card issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles, another type of picture identification card or other credible document of identification.
Exceptions: The identification requirement is waived for persons 17 years of age and younger, persons in long term care and individuals receiving emergency care.
