Accessing Protected DHCS Data for Research and Public Health
This is the primary portal for requesting protected data from the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) for research and public health purposes. Protected data refers to any data containing confidential information that otherwise would be unavailable to the public. This website is not for requesting publicly available data.
Assembly Bill (AB) 2207 Reporting
AB 2207, signed by the Governor in 2016, builds on prior Medi-Cal dental data reporting requirements by adding performance measures for pediatric and adult dentistry. The legislation includes reporting requirements for utilization data on a “per-provider” basis, and annual preventive services by prevention, treatment, examination, and general anesthesia categories. The legislation aligns FFS and DMC annual and quarterly reporting requirements. Please refer to the AB 2207 Implementation Timeline for more information.
Medi-Cal Dental Complaints and Grievances Reports
California Health and Human Services (CHHS) Agency Open Data Portal
The Open Data Portal provides public access to non-confidential health and human services data. DHCS is actively adding data to the CHHS Open Data Portal and recently added Medi-Cal Dental Data to the Open Data Portal. Large data sets on the Open Data Portal can be sorted easily and are more readable than large PDFs.
