3. Encrypting and Sending the Flatfile to DHCS

DHCS will only accept files for eligibility verification if they are encrypted and zipped using specialized software. The instructions for preparing your files for attachments to an email and sending to DHCS are located here.

Stay tuned for upcoming changes in this procedure. DHCS has stated that they will be using a secure site to transfer these files. This will eliminate this step in the submission of your file. Refer to the LEA Manual, Section LEA Eligible Students (loc ed elig) located on the Local Educational Agency Medi-Cal Billing Option website.
