​​County Use

Counties have entered into a Medi-Cal Data Privacy and Security Agreement (aka the MEDS Agreement) with the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to ensure the privacy and security of Medi-Cal Personally Identifiable Information. Counties have also entered into Mental Health Plan contracts with DHCS for mental health programs which also include provisions to protect Medi-Cal Personally Identifiable Information. It is important for Counties to work collaboratively with the DHCS Privacy Office to ensure Medi-Cal members’ PHI and PII are safeguarded.

Note: All potential breaches/incidents and related correspondence should be reported to incidents@dhcs.ca.gov.
