FY 2021 Final Payment and Data Submission

The Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (IDHS/SUPR) is issuing this gentle reminder that final FY 2021 submissions for billing all non-Medicaid SUPR funded services are due by 5:00 p.m. on August 2, 2021.

It is the responsibility of each vendor to ensure that these billings are submitted for DARTS or manual processing by this date.

As a reminder, it is critically important that DARTS or manual billing errors be resolved when they occur as delays in billing reconciliation from the vendor that result in non-accepted or late submissions will not be eligible for payment through the court of claims.

Examples of such delays in which the vendor bears responsibility include:

  • Submission of claims past the August 2, 2021 date.
  • Non-reconciliation of vendor software reporting problems resulting in inability to submit bills by August 2, 2021.
  • Non-reconciliation of vendor DARTS or manual billing errors by August 2, 2021.
  • Non-submission of manual payment vouchers by August 2, 2021.

To assist with compliance to year-end submissions, it is strongly recommended that June DARTS or manual earnings, as well as any other prior month's earnings, be submitted as early as possible in July to allow time for correction of errors.

Your adherence to this submission deadline is appreciated and is a factor that is evaluated each state fiscal year during the contracting process.

Please share this notification, and all those subsequent, with each applicable staff in your organization. Questions concerning this requirement can be directed to the SUPR Help Desk at: DOIT.SUPRHELP@ILLINOIS.GOV.
