The California Department of Health Care Services plans to implement the Provider Application and Validation for Enrollment portal to simplify and accelerate Medi-Cal enrollment processes for dental providers. DHCS anticipates the PAVE launch to occur no later than November 2022.
The PAVE portal is a web-based application that allows dental providers to submit enrollment applications and required documentation to DHCS electronically. DHCS will no longer accept paper applications once PAVE is implemented.
The Medi-Cal Provider e-Form Application complies with current state and federal regulatory and statutory requirements. All dental providers will be required to use PAVE e-forms to enroll in Medi-Cal, report changes to existing enrollments and complete revalidation or continued enrollment for individual, group and rendering provider types.
The easy-to-use, intuitive PAVE portal streamlines the enrollment process by offering:
- Secure login
- Document uploading
- Electronic signatures
- Application progress tracking
- Social collaboration
You can access resources and learn more about the new portal on the DHCS PAVE page.
