Important Information for Non-Contracted Hospitals

Kern Family Health Care (KFHC) is a managed Medi-Cal plan serving over 280,000 members in Kern County. Prior authorization is not required for emergency services. If a member is admitted to your facility for post-stabilization care after a medical emergency, you can reach us at the contact numbers below. You may also send a facesheet to the Utilization Management fax below for notification and so that we may follow member’s care and assist with any care coordination needs the member may have. KFHC does not require the transfer of the member to an in-network hospital.
