Early Intervention Provider Payment Update Effective - 01/23/20

We are glad to report that technical issues with the DHS accounting system that delayed some payments in early January have been resolved. IDHS is sorry for any inconvenience or hardship this may have caused for you.

The Office of the Comptroller has been very helpful to DHS during this challenge, and has been in regular communication with our staff as we work to process all EI provider payments.

Last evening, the Comptroller’s staff processed 2,270 Early Intervention payments totaling about $5 million. For this set of payments, paper checks will be mailed out today (Friday 1/24) and all electronic payments should be in EI provider accounts on Monday.

If you have questions, please continue to check the Provider Connections website at Click Here/ProviderConnections/ for ongoing updates.

We thank all of our providers for their patience and understanding during this time, and we strive to make future payments more predictable and regular

Thank you!
