Judge Coleman.

Another memo from the Division of Developmental Disabilities below sent last


Another update from what we know today:

  • HFS did initiate vouchers for just under $2M in ICF/DD claims last night.
  • DHS has authorized HFS to initiate additional ICF/DD vouchers tonight—
    the limitations on the total that may be initiated are $5M for residential and
    $2.5M for the day programs.
  • DHS has authorized HFS to initiate further ICF/DD vouchers on Friday
    evening—the limitations on that total are $12M for residential and $7M for
    day programs.
  • We have switched to FY16 funds for the ICF/DD vouchers.  It is our
    understanding it can take a couple of days through the computer systems
    from the time HFS initiates the ICF/DD vouchers until they are received by
    the Office of the Comptroller.
  • At this time, we cannot confirm any new activity with regard to the
    approximately $47M for community services with vouchers pending at the
    Office of the Comptroller.  We know providers are closely monitoring the
    Comptroller’s system for the latest status of their payments.
