Payment Processing Update 7/15; More payments will approve ; Some Payments STILL Not Issued Yet; New Debit Card May Cause Some Delays

July 15, 2015 at 5:08 pm

REMINDER: AS COMMUNICATED MANY TIMES IN THE PAST, PROVIDERS SHOULD COUNT ON A THREE WEEK TIME FRAME FOR PAYMENTS. SOME MONTHS MAY BE QUICKER …BUT FOR BUDGETING PURPOSES YOU SHOULD COUNT ON PAYMENTS BEING ISSUED THREE WEEKS FROM ENTRY DATE.

APPROVED PAYMENTS

On 7/6 DHS approved SOME (not all) payments entered on 7/1. MOST of the remaining payments entered on 7/1 not already approved, and SOME of the payments entered on 7/2 were approved on 7/7.  DHS always notes MOST on the approval of payments because some payments get held up for individual technical issues or other provider specific issues.    Most of the remaining payments entered on 7/2, not already approved, MOST of the payments entered on 7/6, and SOME of the payments entered on 7/7 were approved by DHS on 7/10.   The normal mid-month funding for DHS should start to approve more payments on 7/16.  On 7/16, DHS will probably approve payments entered on 7/7 not already approved, and MOST payments entered on 7/8, and possibly some entered  on 7/9.  With funding being available, many more payments will be approved throughout the remainder of the month.

Providers can generally view approved payments at:

www.dhs.state.il.us

PAYMENTS ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF THE COMPTROLLER  (STILL SOME TAPE PROBLEMS)

DHS had a tape issue on some of the  payments approved on 7/6 and 7/7 .  THERE WAS ANOTHER PROBLEM LAST NIGHT WITH THE TAPE THAT HAD SOME OF THE PAYMENTS APPROVED ON 7/6.  DHS is re-working that computer tape, and when fixed,  it will be sent back over to The Office of the Comptroller.  At this point, we do not know when those payments approved on 7/6 will be issued.  Unfortunately,  the earliest these will be issued is 7/16, but it could be longer.  It appears payments approved on 7/7 SHOULD be issued tonight, 7/15.  Payments approved on 7/10  had no technical issues and were issued on 7/14. Reminder payments issued on the new debit card this month, may not be on the card for 3 or four working days after being issued. Normally payments to the debit card would be in the account two working days after being issued.

Providers can see issued payments at:
