The following information is intended to provide a general guide to help you implement screening for adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and better determine the likelihood a patient is at increased health risk due to a toxic stress response. Screening for ACEs helps inform patient treatment and encourage the use of trauma-informed care. For more information, visit ACEs Aware.

Note:  While ACE’s Aware billing and payment information is specific to Medi-Cal providers, funded by Proposition 56, the ACE’s Aware training materials and resources still apply to non Medi-Cal Providers. Non Medi-Cal providers can still get trained and use the workflows and tools. This article outlines how non Medi-Cal providers (that are trained and attest to training) can receive the $29 payment.
