FISCAL YEAR 2017 FINAL PAYMENT AND DATA SUBMISSION DATE
This Smart Alert is the first notification of the FY 2017 final submission due date for billing all non-Medicaid DASA funded services. The due date is August 7, 2017. 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 that are the responsibility of the vendor are:
- Submission of claims past the August 7, 2017 date.
- Non-reconciliation of vendor software reporting problems resulting in inability to submit bills by August 7, 2017.
- Non-reconciliation of vendor DARTS or manual billing errors by August 7, 2017.
- Non-submission of manual payment vouchers by August 7, 2017.
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 during each state fiscal year contracting process.
An additional reminder of this submission deadline will be sent in May. Please share this notification, and all those subsequent, with each applicable staff in your organization. Questions concerning this requirement can be directed to the DASA Help Desk at DHS.DASAHELP@ILLINOIS.GOV.
