Block Transfer Filings

Before the termination date of its contract with a provider group or a general acute care hospital, health care service plans must submit an enrollee Block Transfer Filing to the DMHC. The DMHC reviews these filings to ensure compliance with applicable statutory (Knox-Keene Act) and regulatory (California Code of Regulations title 28) requirements.

The DMHC’s review ensures (1) that the network remains adequate without the terminating provider group or hospital and (2) that the impacted enrollees are timely notified of the termination and informed of their rights. If the DMHC approves a Block Transfer Filing, the health plan may inform its enrollees of the termination and redirect the enrollees to the alternate providers.

To request a copy of a Block Transfer Filing already submitted to the DMHC, please complete a Public Records Act request here.

Health Plans may submit Block Transfer Filings via the Block Transfer Web Portal here.

Arbitration Decisions

Each health plan, which uses arbitration to settle disputes with its members must file with the Department a copy of any written arbitration decision. The filed copy must include the amount of the award, the reasons for the award and the names of the arbitrators. By law, the names of the plan, member, witnesses, attorneys, provider, plan employees and plan facilities are deleted from the copy filed with the Department. These redacted copies of the decisions are filed each quarter and every effort will be made to post them on this site within the following quarter and make available to the public.
