Payment Update- April 13, 2015

On 3/16/15 there was a major technical issue with one of the systems.  Apparently the issue caused a problem with loading some of the payments entered on that day.  The programmers that work with the approval of payments were able to do some processing, and many of those payments have been approved.  However, it appears there are still some payments entered on 3/16 that need to be approved. Hopefully, those will should be approved by DHS within a couple days.  we should have a better update today or tomorrow on these.

APPROVED PAYMENTS

**On Thursday night, 4/9 DHS approved MOST payments entered on 4/7.

**On Friday night, 4/10 DHS approved MOST of payments entered on 4/8.

**On Monday night, 4/13 DHS should approve MOST of the payments entered on 4/9.

Funding will continue, and many more payments should be approved at least for the next few days.  The fastest payments can be approved by DHS is two working days after be entered.

Child Care Payment Update-April 6, 2015

APPROVED PAYMENTS

**On Wednesday night 4/1, DHS approved MOST of the remaining payments entered on 3/3 and 3/4 that were not already approved, along with MOST payments entered on 3/5, 3/6, and MANY (not all) entered on 3/9.  The payments approved on 4/1  are  listed on the DHS web site, and can be heard on 800-804-3833.

**On Friday night, 4/3  DHS did not approve payments because of  recent system issues.

APPROVED PAYMENTS
**On Wednesday night 4/1, DHS approved MOST of the remaining payments entered on 3/3 and 3/4 that were not already approved, along with MOST payments entered on 3/5, 3/6, and MANY (not all) entered on 3/9.  The payments approved on 4/1 are showing today are  listed on the DHS web site, and can be heard on 800-804-3833 today.
**On Thursday night, 4/2, DHS did  approve MOST of the remaining payments entered up to 3/27 that were not already approved.   However, because of some of the nightly cycle issues from yesterday, the approvals from 4/2 are  not listed today on the DHS web site, and cannot be heard yet on 800-804-3833.  All those areas should be updated for viewing on Saturday 4/4 or Monday morning 4/6.

Child Care Payment Update- April 2, 2015

Many of the nightly cycles from last night took much longer to run than usual.  This delay caused IVR entry payments done by providers on 4/1 to have an entry date of 4/2. This means providers calling into 800-804-3833 today to confirm their 4/1 entry cannot hear that entry.  Also, today the IVR system will continue to allow the providers to enter the same payment entered on 4/1.  All this should be fixed for viewing and processing on Friday, 4/3. 
 
 
APPROVED PAYMENTS
**On Wednesday night 4/1, DHS approved MOST of the remaining payments entered on 3/3 and 3/4 that are not already approved, along with MOST payments entered on 3/5, 3/6, and MANY (not all) entered on 3/9.  HOWEVER, with the system downloading late, those payments approved on 4/1 , are not listed on the DHS web site, and cannot be heard on 800-804-3833 today.  All those areas should have updated approval information showing on Friday, 4/3.
**On Thursday night, 4/2, DHS should be approving  MOST of the remaining payments entered up to 3/27 that were not already approved.
 **DHS hopes to have MOST of the back log of payments waiting for approval to be done by Friday night 4/3/15.  Also, at this time DHS believes it will be able to start approving payments entered in April at the end of this week, or early next week.
