Approved Payments:

On 10/22, most payments entered on 10/9 not already approved, and most payments entered on 10/10, 10/13, and 10/14 were approved by DHS.

We note MOST on the approval of entered payments because some payments require extra technical work to process the payments, or there might be an issue with the provider information which can cause delays on the approval of the payments. Funding should continue to be available throughout the remainder of October, and should allow DHS to approve most payments two or three working days after the entry date. Providers can generally hear about entered and approved payments on 800-804-3833 one or two working days after the entry or approval.

Child Care Payment Update- October 10, 2014

Approved Payments:
It appears SOME payments entered on 10/1 were approved by DHS on 10/6 and 10/7. We note SOME on the approval of entered payments because available funding was limited early in the month, some payments require extra technical work to process the payments, or there might be an issue with the provider information which can cause delays on the approval of the payments. The small portion of funding available that was available on 10/6 and 10/7 was  all the extra funding DHS had until our normal mid-month funding becomes available around 10/15.   So, most payments entered on 10/1 and later won’t be approved by DHS until 10/15 or later.  Providers can generally hear about entered and approved payments on 800-804-3833 one or two working days after the entry or approval.  Providers can also receive information on payments by using the following web site to see approval information:

Click on:  Submit
-most recent approved payment will be noted at the top of the page.  The CVR column is the approved date.
 
Issued Payments
** It appears the payments approved by DHS on 10/6 were issued by The Office of the Comptroller on 10/8.  Payments issued as paper checks on 10/8 were mailed on 10/9.  Direct deposit and debit card payment issued on 10/8 will be in the accounts on 10/10.  Payments approved by DHS on 10/7 were issued on 10/9.  The 10/9 paper checks will be mailed on 10/10.  Direct Deposit and debit card payments issued on 10/9 will be in the accounts, two working days after the issue date, which will be Tuesday 10/14 ( Monday 10/13 is a holiday).   As payments become approved next week, they should be issued by The Office of the Comptroller in 1-3 working days after approval date.

CHILD CARE PAYMENT UPDATE- SEPTEMBER 18, 2013

Approved Payments:

Many of the payments entered this month have been approved, or will be approved by Friday 9/19. The technical issue that occurred earlier this week has made it a little difficult to determine actually where we are on the approval process. It appears MOST payments entered up to 9/11 should be approved by DHS tonight 9/18. On Friday night, 9/19 we should be caught up with the backlog of payments waiting to be approved, and should be approving payments with entry dates up to 9/17. We note MOST on the approval of entered payments because some payments require extra technical work to process the payments, or there might be an issue with the provider information which can cause delays on the approval of the payments. With full funding starting on 9/15, we should continue to approve payments throughout the remainder of September. Providers can generally hear about entered and approved payments on 800-804-3833 one or two working days after the entry or approval. Providers can also receive information on payments by using the following web site to see approval information:
