Early Intervention will pay for AT items at rates comparable with the Illinois Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) rate structure. For those items requiring individualized pricing, Early Intervention will reimburse at the rate of vendor wholesale
cost plus 50% up to the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP). For items in which there is no wholesale discount to vendors (such as equipment marketed direct to consumer/catalog companies), rate may be adjusted by 25% if no alternative is
available pending approval by the AT coordinator. All rates submitted are subject to the approval of the AT coordinator.
Pricing information submitted by vendors must include manufacturer's pricing information either by providing with the quote copies of the catalog page depicting the item with printed price easily readable or a copy of the separate pricing sheet along
with picture and description of the item. For items that are marketed direct to consumer, the vendor price quote must explain any variance between manufacture or catalog pricing submitted.
