Reporting Other Health Coverage
Federal and state laws require Medi-Cal members to report OHC to ensure Medi-Cal is the payer of last resort.
When Medi-Cal learns that a member has OHC, the Medi-Cal record is than updated to reflect the OHC.
Before submitting your request to modify OHC, please have the Medi-Cal member’s
Client Index Number (CIN) available and OHC information. The CIN is the first nine characters of the identification number located on the front of the member’s
Benefits Identification Card (BIC).
