Virtual Office Hours: For individuals new to the early intervention system, it is common for questions to arise when learning the ropes. The Early Intervention Partners (Early Intervention Training Program (EITP), Provider Connections, Early Intervention Clearinghouse, Central Billing Office and the EI Monitoring Program are excited to announce Virtual Office Hours! On the first Tuesday of each month, from 3-4pm, new providers will have the opportunity to ask questions about our field and our work. Partners will be available to answer your questions and provide clarification, guidance and support as you familiarize yourself with the EI program. You may call in every month or intermittently, as it suits you. There is no fee for this service, and no credit hours will be awarded. This is open to providers in their first year. No question is too small! We are here for you!  https://go.illinois.edu/EITPOfficeHours

Provider Payment Updates

  • Early Intervention Provider Payment Update Effective 08/30/19

Early Intervention has secured funds to process the provider vouchers for the week dated 07/31/19. These vouchers were approved today and will post on the Comptroller’s website within the next few business days.

Please continue to watch the Comptroller’s website for further payment information.

Early Intervention is continually working to secure additional revenues in order to process additional payments.  We are not always aware of when these funds may be released to the Early Intervention 502 Revolving Fund.  We also must have the funds secured into the DHS accounting systems before payments can be made.  The balance on the IOC may vary from the DHS accounting system due to pending obligations.  IOC is only the first step in the process.  While we understand the impact any delay has on every aspect of the Early Intervention Services System, we are not able to change the way the state process works.  Early Intervention receives funding from multiple sources and every effort is made to reduce the impact of the lack of funds available from one source by utilizing every other source possible.  As funds become available, payments will be made.

As always, thank you for your continued support and patience.

IMPACT

  • IMPACT Notice: Entering in a License Number-02/01/18

Illinois Medicaid Program Advanced Cloud Technology (IMPACT) staff have been advised that there is an issue with the interface between IMPACT and the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation (IDFPR) when providers enter their license number as it appears on the license.

An Illinois Professional License might include a special character, such as a period, as part of the license number. Entering this special character as part of a license number in IMPACT will stop the system from matching the license number as registered with the IDFPR. Please refrain from entering any special characters as part of your license number in IMPACT, even if the special character appears on your license.

If you have received an email, such as the one below, from the IMPACT Help Desk and your licensure has not expired, please contact the IMPACT Help Desk at 1-877-782-5565 for assistance.

The State of Illinois Medicaid Program has been notified that your professional license expired on **/**/****. All providers requiring licensure to practice in the State of Illinois must maintain a current licensure as a condition of participation in the Illinois Medicaid Program.
