The Service Coordinator assigned to your case at the Regional Center must initiate the process of authorizing your services with a Purchase of Service (POS) request. This request must then be approved by a supervisor. Depending on the service, it may need another approval by a funding committee.
Once final approval is given, the POS is then processed by the Regional Center accounting department. Upon processing, the accounting department sends an authorization for services to Premier. Once Premier receives the authorization, it is entered into the system and the provider can be paid according to the terms of the authorization.
