Child Care Payment Update- January 27th

January 27, 2015 at 10:34 pm

*Providers can hear payment information updates on (217) 524-9041. The message on that  number is updated about once a week.
 Approved Payments:
 Most payments entered on 1/15, 1/16, and many entered on 1/20 were approved by DHS on 1/22.  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.  At this point, we are waiting on some federal funding to approve most of the remaining payments entered in January that have not been approved.  Those payments waiting would include, some payments entered on 1/20, and payments entered on 1/21, 1/22, 1/23, 1/26, and 1/27. We are hopeful the federal funds will become available somewhat soon.   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
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.     
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.
