Plan on Testifying at a CA Hearing: Read the new process
Attestation and Certification for EI Billing:
DDS is postponing the attestation. Will be developing a revised Directive  required around PPP funds. 

  • You can bill for March without being held accountable for the attestation.  
  • As a precaution with your billing you are encouraged to simply write a letter to your regional center (Include Vendor Codes ) that you agreed to the E-Billing certifications but that you are doing so “in protest of #9 regarding PPP and other federal funds”.  
  • If you have already billed and agreed to the attestation then go ahead and still write that letter to your regional center identifying the codes billed.
  • DDS plans to re-issue a directive that the attestation requirement is being pulled out of the certification requirements for the March billing. 

Community Care Licensing: PIN 21-13-CCP provides information about the repeal of Title 22, Section 101161(b) regarding ambulatory and non-ambulatory children. more info
