Regional centers are private, non-profit corporations under contract with the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS). Their purpose is to provide or coordinate services and support for individuals with developmental disabilities. They provide a local resource to help find, plan, access, coordinate, and monitor the services and support to individuals and their families.

Primary care physicians (PCPs) must provide eligible Medi-Cal members identified with, or suspected of having, developmental disabilities with all medically necessary screenings, primary preventive care and diagnostic and treatment services. For members at risk of parenting a child with a developmental disability, Health Net covers genetic counseling and other prenatal genetic services. PCP also arranges for the provision of medically necessary Behavioral Health Treatment (BHT) services even without a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Managed Health Network (MHN Inc.) provides the BHT services.
