The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) recently announced the details of its annual “checkwrite” delay. DHCS will delay certain payments for two weeks in June so that those claims are paid out of the 2023-2024 fiscal year budget. This checkwrite delay will impact providers who render services through Medi-Cal funded programs.
Medi-Cal fee-for-service payments scheduled with a warrant date of June 22, 2023, will be held until July 6, 2023. Payments to the following programs will be held during this time period:
- Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP)
- Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT)
Medi-Cal funded fee-for-service payments scheduled for June 29, 2023, will be held until July 6, 2023. Payments to the following programs will be held during this time period:
- State-Only California Children’s Services
- State-Only Genetically Handicapped Persons Program
Payments made to the Every Woman Counts (EWC) program will be excluded from the hold.
