About our Team
Welcome to your Medi-Cal Provider Outreach and Education home page. The Outreach and Education team is comprised of Regional Representatives, the Small Provider Billing Unit (SPBU) and Coordinators who are available to train and assist providers to efficiently submit their Medi-Cal claims for payment.
