Your Regional Center just discontinued — or reduced — services in your Individual Program Plan (IPP). You disagree. Now what?

The Notice of Proposed Action (NOPA) describing the change in services will provide you information on how to appeal. If your appeal is postmarked or received by the Regional Center within 10 days of the NOPA, you are entitled to “aid paid pending,” meaning that the Regional Center must continue to fund or provide the disputed service(s) while the appeal is pending. (Cal. Welf. & Inst. Code § 4715(a).) 

If you wait until after the 10-day window, you can still appeal — but the Regional Center is not legally required to continue providing the disputed service(s). Even if you plan to hire legal counsel, don’t sit on your rights while you search for the right attorney!

Please call the Leigh Law Group at (415) 399-9155 today to schedule a FREE 30-minute consultation to determine whether we can help you with your Regional Center appeal.
