Child Care Payment Update March 13, 2015 – Still Relying on Only Federal Funding

March 13, 2015 at 2:24 pm

Thank you to IDHS Child Care Bureau Staff for the continued updates:

Approval of Payments by DHS

We are still currently only operating with Federal funding. On Monday night, 3/16, the mid-month Federal funding will become available to start to approve payments.  On 3/16,  DHS should approve the payments entered on 2/5 not already approved, and Most payments entered on 2/6 and probably some payments entered on 2/9.  Later entry dates should be approved throughout the week of 3/16 – 3/20, or until the Federal allocation for the month runs out.  Without additional State funding, DHS will still not be able to approve all payments waiting for approval.  At this point, we believe many of the payments entered in February will be approved within the coming week.  But,  payments entered in March probably  won’t be able to start being approved until mid-month funding is in place in mid-April.  Of course, most these delays would change if additional State funding is added.

Providers can see approved payments at:

*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:

When payments become approved, they should be issued by The Office of the Comptroller  1-3 working days after being approved by DHS.

Providers can see issued payments at:

*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.

As new information becomes available, we will provide an update.
