The Gold Coast Health Plan (GCHP) Provider Portal provides online access to member eligibility information, the ability to enter authorization requests and check status of authorizations, and to check the status of claims. Office managers request and maintain user privileges for themselves and for office staff.
- At the beginning of 2021, GCHP will implement a new claims system to better serve providers. As a result of the system conversion, several functions and documents will change. Click here for more information.
- Starting April 1, 2021, the state Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will carve out all prescription benefits from Managed Care Plans (MCP) under a new program called Medi-Cal Rx. Upon implementation, all pharmacy claims will be submitted directly to the state via its pharmacy benefit manager (PBM), Magellan Medicaid Administration, Inc. Click here for more information.
