Early Intervention Provider Payment Update Effective – 07/29/2022

Early Intervention has processed all SFY22 provider vouchers thru Illinois Controller Site, the final payment processed this morning. Our 502 fund balance will be processing all final contracted payments. We are in the process of completing final checks and tests to begin processing SFY23 vouchers early next week. Coding within the state payment system is being updated for the transition to the Division of Early Childhood.

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 submitted into our data systems.  Please know that if we have funds available, we are always working towards releasing those payments as soon as possible.
