For examples of To help you better understand the child care services approved for parents on the Alternative Payment Program, watch our how-to videos:
Attendance records are the backbone of the Alternative Payment Program as these records are what is submitted monthly for provider reimbursement. Each family is given an attendance record specifically coded to a specific month and child. It is essential that child care is documented on the correct attendance form. The parent, provider or authorized person is responsible for recording the child’s drop off and pick up times on CDA’s attendance record. CDA cannot accept alternate attendance records. If an alternate record is received, reimbursement cannot be issued. Watch our how-to videos:
Invoicing CDA is simple. Complete the “Provider Bill/Invoicing” section on each child’s attendance record by filling out what you charge for the care provided. This can either be a monthly, or weekly amount, depending on what your current rate sheet states. Then, submit your signed attendance records to CDA’s main office in Bonita.
Attendance records are due in our CDA Main office in Bonita by the 10th each month. Reimbursements are made 15 business days from the date received. If attendance records are received after the 10th of the month, reimbursements are made 25 business days from the date received.
