On-Site Specialty Care Providers
On-site specialty care providers at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) or Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ)* facility are responsible for:
- Reviewing the Health Care Contractor’s On-Site Orientation handbook and providing a signed self-certification form to Network Providers, LLC (NPLLC) prior to the commencement of services. The handbook and self-certification form are located on the California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) website. Once signed, it can apply to all institutions at which the provider renders care.
- If CCHCS revises the handbook, the network is notified and all on-site providers are responsible for reviewing the revised version of the handbook. They must then sign and submit a new self-certification form to NPLLC.
Network onsite providers may not dispense durable medical equipment to CDCR patients.
*As of June 30, 2023, all Divisions of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) are closed. Juvenile offenders are no longer committed to the DJJ as of this date. Effective July 1, 2023, claims for health care services rendered to the DJJ youth should be directed to the county where the patient is located. Claims for services rendered on or prior to June 30, 2023, will continue to be the responsibility of California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).
