Child Care Payment Updates- January 16, 2015

January 16, 2015 at 5:35 pm

*Providers can hear payment information updates on (217) 524-9041. The message on that  number is updated about once a week.
Remember-*** Monday 1/19 is a holiday**
Approved Payments:
On 1/15, it appears DHS approved MOST of the remaining payments entered on 1/5 not already approved, and many (not all) of the payments entered on 1/6.  On 1/16 it appears MOST of the remaining payments entered on 1/6 not already approved by DHS, along with MOST payments entered on 1/7, and many (not all) payments entered on 1/8 should be 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.  DHS should continue to approve many payments throughout next week.  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 by DHS on 1/14 were issued by The Office of the Comptroller last night, 1/15. As payments become approved by DHS, they should be issued by The Office of the Comptroller within 1-3 working days after approval date. Payments are issued at night.  Providers paid by paper warrant have their payments mailed the working day after being issued.  For direct deposit and debit card payments, those funds are in accounts two working days after the issue date.  Weekends and holidays are not working days.    NOTE:  Monday 1/19, is a holiday.  
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.
