Provider Notice - Early Intervention Services - Based on Scientific-Based Research
Early Intervention Provider Payment Updates Effective 11/26/13 - The Early Intervention Bureau has secured funds to approve the 10/09/13 voucher for payment. This payment should be visible on the DHS and Comptroller websites within the next few business days.
Additionally, we have secured funds to approve the 10/16/13 and 10/23/13 weekly vouchers for payment. The process has started, but with the holiday this week, they may not be available until early next week. The Bureau has also obligated some of the recently received funds to contract payments.
Early Intervention is continually working to secure additional revenues in order to process 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. 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 state funds available by utilizing every other source. As funds remain available, payments will be made. Thank you for your support and continued patience.
