Medi-Cal Eligibility Ratio (MER) for the SFY 2021-22 CRCS Report

The direct service MER is calculated annually and used to apportion cost to the Medi‑Cal Program. To calculate the MER for the SFY 2021-22 CRCS, LEA BOP Providers must use the following methodology:

  • Numerator (Number of Medi-Cal Eligible Students in the LEA): Report the unduplicated count of Medi-Cal enrolled students. The number of Medi-Cal enrolled students will be determined based on the Medi-Cal data match output file used to check Medi-Cal student enrollment. LEA BOP Providers are to use enrollment data as of May 25, 2022 and the data match output result for May 2022 to determine the numerator.

    • This is usually done in October, however the data match process was unavailable in October 2021.

  • Denominator (Total Number of Students Enrolled in the LEA): Report the unduplicated count of all students enrolled in the LEA. LEA Providers are to obtain enrollment data on May 25, 2022.
