The California Department of Health Care Services is implementing the Provider Application and Validation for Enrollment portal, known as PAVE, to simplify and accelerate the Medi-Cal enrollment processes for dental providers.
Starting Oct. 31, dental providers must electronically submit enrollment applications and required documentation to DHCS through PAVE. Paper enrollment applications will no longer be accepted upon PAVE’s implementation.
Learn about PAVE in upcoming webinars
DHCS invites dental providers to attend two online demonstrations to learn more about PAVE. The two-part webinar series will include an introduction to PAVE and an overview of key features. Each session is one hour. The recorded presentation will be posted on the DHCS website.
A more in-depth training session will be scheduled in November once the PAVE portal is implemented.
