On September 11, Child Care Providers United-SEIU L99, hosted an additional meeting with the Child Care Resource Center (CCRC) in Adelanto, San Bernardino County. Providers from San Bernardino and surrounding cities came together to talk with CCRC representatives about their concerns with payment calculations. As you may remember in April CCRC announced changes to their invoice format and we mobilized to organize several meetings to ensure providers were knowledgeable about the new invoice formats.
Some of the questions providers asked were on how to calculate premium hours and the eligibility requirements for the special needs category. Our own member leader, Judy Zamora, helped us through a calculation training during the meeting. This helped providers understand how to accurately calculate their payments, ensuring payment in a timely manner.
“It was a very informative experience. Hearing other providers share the same concerns made me feel like I wasn’t alone. When providers come together we support each other, sharing resources and tools,” said Heather Yarber, Provider from Victorville.
The new invoice process will begin January 2020 but CCRC has already begun testing the form in some areas. If you have any questions about the form or payment issues, contact CCRC directly. If you have trouble reaching someone contact your organizer.

Here are some of the most common questions providers asked about the new form.
Yes, a provider can get paid both the evening/weekend differential and the hourly rate after 52.5. Please note: Payments made at the hourly rate after 52.5 cannot exceed the weekly FT rate. Essentially, a provider can only get paid double their weekly rate.
It is the same differential we know, 1.125 if care is between 10% to 50% and 1.25 if the care is more than 50%
The prorated is calculated based on the number of days of care approved and the amount paid for care per week or month. CCRC indicated that when it’s a variable schedule and the beginning of the month started mid-week or ends mid-week the provider will be paid based on their daily rate or hourly rate.
