Notice Regarding Billing
Westside Regional Center (WRC) has previously notified all Purchase of Service Providers that it may be unable to pay any bill for service that is older than 90 days. In the past, WRC has made every effort to pay billings beyond those 90 days. However, due to increased budget constraints, WRC has been forced to revise its policy. It is expected that Service Providers will bill within the aforementioned 90 day period, and WRC is committed to honoring those billings, however, WRC will no longer pay Purchase of Service Providers for any bill for service that that is older than 120 days. It is the responsibility of the Service Provider to submit billings in a timely manner.
Also, please be reminded that as Service Providers, you are not to provide any service to any consumer without an approved authorization (blue form) in place, whether it be a hard or electronic copy, signed by the Accounting Department of Westside Regional Center. Telephone calls, emails, or any other form of communication from Westside Regional Center staff should not be construed as authorization. As the Service Provider, if you provide services to any consumer prior to the authorization being in place, no invoice will be generated, no billing will be allowed and no payment will be made.
