Dear CSA Users,
The General Assembly has passed a stop-gap budget (Public Act 99-0524) that includes a mix of appropriations authorizing IDHS to pay for FY16 and FY17 specified community services. Due to the uniqueness of the stop-gap budget, there are several changes that must be made to our accounting system and our practices in order to pay for the services you provided. This message is being sent to all IDHS providers, but some providers may not be affected by this. Before IDHS can submit FY16 vouchers for payment, existing CSA obligations must be moved from FY16 GRF appropriations onto the stop-gap appropriations. This will occur in two steps.
Step 1 will begin next week. The program changes necessary for Step 2 have begun. We will send an updated timeline after Step 1 is complete.
Thank you for the dedication you have shown during this difficult year. We ask for patience as we work through the implementation of the stop-gap budget.
If you have additional questions regarding this process, please contact your contract manager. Again, we thank you for your continued partnership.
