Medi-Cal beneficiary social security numbers cannot be transferred by providers if the beneficiary has a personalized Medi-Cal identification card and identification number. This does not apply if the provider requesting beneficiary eligibility. Thie use of identification card numbers is intended to reduce the number of times that a beneficiary's social security number is transferred, thereby reducing the potential for fraud and abuse.
