Child Care Payment Update : December 30, 2014

December 30, 2014 at 5:12 pm

*Providers can hear payment information updates on (217) 524-9041. The message on that  number is updated about once a week.
Approved Payments:
Last night, 12/29, it appears DHS approved MOST of the  payments entered on 12/23 and 12/24.  On 12/30, DHS should approve MOST payments entered on 12/26.  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. For now, it appears funding  should remain available to approve MOST payments entered into the system throughout December.  At this point, we do not have information about funding to process payments early in January.  As always, we will at least have our mid-month funding become available around January 15th.  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 approval of  payments by using the following web site to see approval information:
*Go to tab:  FOR PROVIDERS
*Click on:  PAYMENTS
Enter:  SS# or FEIN
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 payments approved on 12/22  were issued by The Office of the Comptroller on 12/29. As payments become approved by DHS, they should be issued by The Office of the Comptroller in 1-3 working days after approval date.  Reminder, 12/24, 12/25, and 12/26 were not working days for The Office of the Comptroller.  Also, January 1 is not a working day.
Providers can always see if a payment has been issued by going to The Office of the Comptroller web site of:
*Go to Financial Inquiries (tab at top of the page)
*click on Vendor Payments
* Enter SS# or FEIN (click OK)
*For the next two pages click on Gray Boxes at bottom  (Payments and Find Warrants)
Most recent payment will be listed at top of the page.
