Child Care Payment Update- October 28th

October 28, 2013 at 3:07 pm

Here is a quick note on payments received this morning from IDHS. We appreciate their continued efforts to keep us all in the loop as we understand how important payments are to providers.

**Payments entered on 9/27, 9/30, and small portion entered on 10/1 are not approved yet, and won’t be approved until federal money is made available. Hopefully, that will be by the middle to later part of this week.

**Approval of payments:

– most payments entered on 10/1, 10/2, 10/3, 10/4, and about half entered on 10/7 should have been approved last week, at least by Friday night (10/25).

-Monday night (10/28) DHS should approve: remainder of payments entered on 10/7, 10/8, 10/9, 10/10, 10/11, and about half entered on 10/15

-Tuesday night (10/29) DHS should approve: remainder of payments entered on 10/15, 10/16, 10/17, 10/18, 10/21, 10/22, 10/23, half entered on 10/24

Payments Issued at Comptroller Office:

-starting to see a very small portion become issued.
-Payments approved on 10/21 SHOULD be issued tonight (Monday 10/28, or Tuesday 10/29)
-Other approved payments should start to be issued in next few days

**Reminder on the payment process: payment gets entered into the system, when funding is available for the payment, the payment is approved/vouchered. Generally, 1-3 working days after the payment is approved it will be issued by The Office of the Comptroller. However, this month the process is taking longer. Providers can follow issued payments at The Office of the Comptroller web site of: (financial inquiries, vendor payments,). Payments are issued at night, if a provider is paid via paper check it will go in the mail the next working day. If a provider is paid through direct deposit or debit card, it will be in the account two working days after the issue date. (Weekends and holidays are not working days).

More updates to follow.
