California Court of Appeal

Marquez v. Department of Health Care Services, A140488

In a writ of mandate under Code of Civil Procedure section 1085 to required respondents' compliance with their duties in administering certain aspects of the Medi-Cal program related to defendant's database with codes that indicate whether a Medi-Cal beneficiary has other health coverage (OHC), the writ is denied and the trial court judgment is affirmed where: 1) neither section 10950 nor regulation 50951 nor the California Constitution requires DHCS to provide a hearing or notice whenever it assigns a new or different code with respect to OHC; and 2) petitioners have not established any violation by respondents of a ministerial duty subject to enforcement by a writ of mandate.
