We are not contracted with IEHP or Medi-Cal. Our Dr was on call and treated an IEHP patient in our office. Legally, is ok to bill the patient directly for his services?

Well, when patient is treated at your office then billing cannot be done for IEHP, because your office is not a group of IEHP. If the office could have been a group or entity of the IEHP, then the billing would have been done for IEHP. But in given scenario billing can be done for your office. Hope it helps!
