Medi-Cal Drug Utilization Data
Medi-Cal drug utilization data is available for fee-for-service outpatient drugs reimbursed on or after July 1, 1996, by Medi-Cal to pharmacies. The data are available in two formats: ASCII fixed length records, and dBASE IV, which is an older database format, but which can easily be read by Excel, Access, and most other database programs.
See table layouts for information on layout changes.
