No, the PDU will not handle the full scope of what is required for compliance, but it will make it easier to achieve compliance with SB 137, Medicare Advantage, and Medi-Cal requirements. The PDU will take on significant parts of the provider data management process for plans and providers, but plans will continue to be responsible for achieving full compliance (i.e. plans are responsible for using the data from the PDU to populate their directories, etc).
Plans can remove the parts of the process that the PDU handles from their internal workflows, so there should be no duplication of work. However, plans are responsible for the parts of the process that the PDU does not cover (i.e. populating their directories with data from the PDU, etc.).
