Child Care Payment Update- October 5th

October 5, 2017 at 1:35 pm

Tonight, DHS should be approving payments to HOME and CENTER providers that were entered on and up to 10/3/17.  ALSO:  There appears to be an issue with the call in number to hear entry and approval of payments (800-804-3833).  It appears the 800# is not giving payment information to licensed providers.  Non-licensed providers and clients are able to hear the entry and approval of the payments.  We are having staff check on this.


**Monday 10/9/17 is a holiday.  DHS’s offices will be closed, and no payments will be approved,  issued, mailed or deposited into accounts on that day.  

** Approval of payments is getting ready to return to the previous way.  Each month DHS will probably be able to approve some payments early in the first part of the month, and then will have to stop approving for a few days until the mid-month draw becomes available (around the 15th of each month). So, for this month, DHS will probably stop approving payments on October 6, 2017.  Then start approving again around October 17th or 18th.  Next week a backlog of payments will start.

Last date processed:

Home providers entered   10/3/17

Center providers entered   10/3/17

Providers paid by direct deposit can get detailed information of issued payments via the internet, by signing up for The Office of the Comptroller Enhanced Remittance screens.  To sign up, providers need to log on to the Office of the Comptroller web site of:  Go to the Vendors section and click on, “Click Here To Access or Register For Enhanced Vendor Remittance.” Then click Register and complete the registration.  After completing the registration, an e-mail will be sent to allow the provider to create a passcode and view detail of payments

Providers with card issues, should call the card company at: 866-338-2944.  For callers to speak with a customer service represnative at the card company,  providers do not enter their card number when the message asks for it.
