Early Intervention has processed the provider payment voucher for the week dated 04/27/2022. This voucher was approved today and should post on the Comptroller’s website within the next few business days. The state payment system had maintinence and upgrades processed late last week and completed yesterday, so the final processing took a few extra days.
Please continue to watch the Provider Connections website for further payment information.
Early Intervention is continually working to secure additional revenues to process additional payments. We are not always aware of when these funds may be released to the Early Intervention 502 Revolving Fund. We also must have the funds secured into the DHS accounting systems before payments can be made. The balance on the IOC may vary from the DHS accounting system due to pending obligations. IOC is only the first step in the process. While we understand the impact any delay has on every aspect of the Early Intervention Services System, we are not able to change the way the state process works. Early Intervention receives funding from multiple sources and every effort is made to reduce the impact of the lack of funds available from one source by utilizing every other source possible.
The State of Illinois payment systems must have a few business days to process the received EI fee for service providers documents once received into our data systems. Please know that if we have funds available, we are always working towards releasing those payments as soon as possible. We will make 05/04/2022 provider voucher payment early next week.
