The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) plans to launch its new Medi-Cal provider enrollment system in October. The Provider Application and Validation for Enrollment (PAVE) system will transform provider enrollment from a manual paper-based process to a web-based portal that providers can use to complete and submit their applications and verifications and to report changes. 

PAVE will improve the provider enrollment experience by minimizing errors, improving the application process and significantly reducing the time required to process provider enrollments.

Testers needed
DHCS is seeking Medi-Cal fee-for-service providers who are interesting in testing the new enrollment system in advance of the launch in October. Testing will begin in August and will continue for two weeks, but only equates to about eight hours of total time commitment over that two-week period. Providers will test the system at their leisure from the convenience of their home or office. Providers can test using a PC, tablet or smartphone. DHCS will provide training, daily support calls and test scripts. As a testing team provider, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

  • Getting a look at PAVE before other providers

  • Opportunity to identify potential bugs or system needs and recommend solutions

  • Directly impact improvements to the final PAVE system as a result of your testing

If you are interested in volunteering to be a tester, email PAVE@dhcs.ca.gov.
