  3. Physician Time Study: California Department of Health Services - All UCSF Physicians are required to complete time studies in order for the clinical departments to receive Medi-Cal SPA reimbursement under the State Plan Amendment 05-023 & Medi-Cal Hospital/Uninsured Care Demonstration (No. 11-W-00193-9) project. As part of national Medicaid reform, these funds help bridge the gap between the reimbursement paid by the state for Medi-Cal patients and the actual cost of providing care to this population. In order to participate in this program, all UCSF physicians who report time are required to complete a brief training course before completing the time study form. Search for "time study" when you log into the UC Learning Center. For your reference, read the FAQs.
