Overbilling of Service Code 109 Authorizations

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and California State of Emergency, additional program support hours were authorized by San Diego Regional Center. These authorizations were set up as service code 109 with a sub-code of COVID-19. SDRC erred and gave many group homes authorizations for each client in the home, instead of the actual number of staffing hours needed. Many homes have billed for the full amount of the authorizations but may not have added additional staff to the hours billed.

Please read this SDRC letter dated September 8, 2020 for further instructions.
