Early Intervention has processed provider vouchers for the week dated 09/14/2022. These vouchers were approved last night and will posted on Illinois Comptroller Site in the next few days. We still have twenty-nine documents from previous weeks that have not processed. We are working with IDHS fiscal office to process all documents. The seventeen documents under $5.00, that are EFT active were processed last night; these documents take collaboration to process and might take slightly longer until the SAP system can be updated to process these documents properly.
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 IDHS 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 payments as soon as possible.
