    • Reply from San Mateo via Covered CA Agent Support

      I received this back from a county representative from San Mateo County:

      “For individuals enrolled in Medi-Cal, then they are automatically enrolled in Denti-Cal. Clients may call 1-800-322-6384 for a list of providers in their county or visit the DHCS website for a list of Denti-Cal providers. They may check out the state website for Denti-Cal: for more information.

      If they come in to one our offices or call, the worker may direct them to the 800# or may provide them with some numbers to local dental providers.

      Calling the 800# would be easier if all they want is to get information on where they can go to see a dentist. They just need to present their Medi-Cal BIC card to a dental office that excepts Medi-Cal/Denti-Cal. If the client has lost their State Medi-Cal BIC card they may call or visit their county of residence Medi-Cal office to request a BIC card.

      Hope this is helpful.”
