Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 

WHOM SHOULD I CALL IF MY DOCTOR’S OFFICE SAYS I NO LONGER HAVE MEDI-CAL?

WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I RECEIVE A BILL FROM A BILLING COMPANY?

Call the billing company and make sure they did not send the bill in error.  If they do not have your health plan information, give them your health plan I.D number (found on the front of your ID card) and not your social security number.  You can also call CFMG Provider Relations for assistance at 510-428-3154.
