Changes & Additions

The following are options for CBO Enrollment changes and additions:

Changes and Additions CANNOT BE EMAILED due to sensitive information. They must be mailed or faxed.

All changes for specialist level providers and others enrolled in the CBO must also be changed in IMPACT.
Please visit the  IMPACT  webpage for more information.

Note: The EI Credential is directly linked to billing for services. Unless an individual intends to provide and bill for services in the Illinois EI System, there is no need to hold the EI Credential. If an individual does get credentialed and enrolled to provide services but does not recieve authorizations or bill for more than 12 consecutive months, the provider is subject to being inactivated from the EI Provider System.

Name changes

Individuals who have had a legal change in their name must change their name in the credential and enrollment systems for reimbursement of services to continue without disruption. To do this click on the name change link below and download/complete the EI Service Matrix Form and W-9 Form using the instructions that come with the documents. A copy of the legal document that verifies the name change must be included with this submission.

Address changes

Individual providers who need to make a change in their payment address for billing purposes must use the EI Service Matrix, contained in the link below, in order to make such a change.

Provider Agencies that need to make a change to the payment address for the agency for billing purposes must use the EI Service Matrix Form contained in the link below. Provider agencies must also include a typed list of all EI providers employed with the agency that are affected by the address change.

Individuals who work for an agency or agencies who just have a personal address change that is not tied to billing may send an email to or fax the change to 309-298-3066.

Adding Individual Enrollment

Providers who are currently enrolled in the EI Central Billing Office through one or more agencies may enroll themselves as an independent/private provider using the forms contained in the link below. Only providers who are currently enrolled should use these forms for enrolling independently. If an individual provider terminates employment with the agency(s) in order to provide independent services a letter should accompany the forms indicating that the employment ended and the last date of employment. This allows Provider Connections to inactivate enrollment for agencies where providers are no longer employed.

A Note about LLCs:

If you are attempting to enroll as a single-member LLC, please view the memo below.    A provider should consult a tax accountant to determine the best situation when setting up a business or even as a self-employed individual. Many providers wish to protect their social security number from the public. This is well understood given the times in which we live. However, Early Intervention providers need to understand the payment procedures mandated within the State of Illinois. These facts pertain only to payments from the State of Illinois/Illinois Office of Comptroller. Again, we request a provider to consult a tax accountant for more specific business/tax guidance.

W-9 Questions regarding LLC-Disregarded Entities
