The department should seek legislation to revise state law to extend the 35-day time period applicants have to remedy deficiencies in their applications to 60 days.
Chapter 693, Statutes of 2007, effective January 1, 2008, was signed by the governor on October 14, 2007, and extends the former 35-day time period applicants had to remedy deficiencies in their applications to 60 days. Additionally, the branch has updated the Medi-Cal Web site to provide notification to applicants that they must use the current and appropriate forms to avoid being denied enrollment into the Medi-Cal program and has updated the Top Reasons Provider Enrollment Applications are Denied to include this information.
