Electronic Billing And Payment
Some of our vendors have opted to use the e-billing and payment system. This system enables vendors to handle billing and payment over the Internet. Access to the Electronic Billing And Payment System is password protected.

24 Hour Conversion
For many service codes, Title 17 regulations require that vendors record workers’ times in and out in order to compute the total hours for billing the regional center. Providers who billed using these service codes did not have the ability to do this with the old e-billing system, but must now record this information in the current e-billing system to finally comply with the regulations.
The e-billing system uses 24 Hour Time (sometimes called Military time) to record in and out times. In 24 hour time each hour is numbered sequentially from 0 to 23 starting at midnight. For example, 12:00 AM (midnight) would be 0:00, 8:00 AM (the eighth hour) would be 8:00, 5:00 PM (the seventeenth hour) would be 17:00.
Please note that unlike hours, minutes are not uniquely numbered. For example, 01:15 in 24 Hour Time is the same as 1:15 AM and 13:15 is the same as 1:15 PM.
A simple rule of thumb is for any hour after 12:00 PM (noon) just add 12 to it. For example, 3:00 PM would be 15:00 (3 + 12) and 11:00 PM would be 23:00 (11 + 12).
See the attached table for a quick reference to 12 Hour to 24 Hour conversion.
