Current law requires the State Department of Health Care Services to require all managed care plans and mental health plans contracting with the department to provide language assistance services, including translation services and oral interpretation services by an interpreter who meets specified minimum qualification criteria, to limited-English-proficient (LEP) Medi-Cal beneficiaries. This bill would modify the minimum qualifications that an interpreter is required to possess to provide oral interpretation services to an LEP beneficiary enrolled in either a managed care plan or a mental health plan.
