The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Local Educational Agency (LEA) Medi-Cal Billing Option Program developed this ‘Tool Box’ to give LEAs quick access to useful resources and information concerning the proper administration and management of the LEA Medi-Cal Billing Option Program.  LEAs are ultimately responsible for administrative functions and should be familiar with the LEA Program Website, department policies, program regulations, and the LEA Program Provider Manual.
