Payment Update- October 31, 2013

October 31, 2013 at 3:18 pm

We understand that the late October payments are creating many hardships for providers, their staff and families.  It is the intent of CCRR to post these updates from IDHS daily to keep providers as informed as possible. Hopefully, next month everything will be back on track. Thank you for your patience and professionalism during this difficult and stressful time.

**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 

:-Monday night (10/28) DHS approved: remainder of payments entered on 10/7, 10/8, 10/9, 10/10, 10/11, and about half entered on 10/15. It appears these payments were issued by The Office of the Comptroller Wed. 10/30.

-Tuesday night (10/29) DHS should have approved: remainder of payments entered on 10/15 not already approved, 10/16, 10/17, 10/18, 10/21, 10/22, 10/23, half payments entered on 10/24. **It appears these payments did approve as noted. However, many of the approved payments from Tuesday night are still not on the 800-804-3833 phone line. Hopefully, information on these approvals should be on the 800# tomorrow. These payments SHOULD be issued Thursday night, 10/31, or Friday night 11/1.**

-Wednesday night (10/30) DHS should approve: remainder of payments entered on 10/24 not approved on 10/29, and about half of the payments entered on 10/25.

-It appears there will be no payments approved by DHS on Thursday night (10/31). More payments should be approved on Friday night, and early next week.

Payments Issued at Comptroller Office:

**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. 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.
