ALL ABOUT RATES
In the Self -Determination Program, participants, families or their selected Independent Facilitator may need access to the DDS rates that regional centers use to pay for services. This information may be helpful when negotiating for services or when determining the monetary amount for unmet needs.
For more detailed information the reimbursement rates paid to Service providers, please go directly to the DDS website at https://www.dds.ca.gov/Rates/
Below is a link to a presentation outlining the categories of traditional service rates. This can be used as a foundation to understand how to develop a baseline for rate negotiation under the Self-Determination Program.
