Please help inform us by completing a short survey about how much you charge for providing child care. Two drawings for $100 Visa gift cards will be held for survey participants.
Licensed and registered child care providers can find the survey from March 9 through April 10, 2015 at: http://surveys.pcgus.com/s3/mimarketratestudy For questions or assistance on the survey, please contact: email@example.com or 1-844-225-3658 (Mon - Fri, 7:00am - 7:00pm EST). Please have your license or registration number(s) ready when you call.
Notice of I-Billing Changes: Several I-Billing enhancements have been implemented to assist with the use of I-Billing. Some of the improvements include the change of the PIN rules pop-up when changing your PIN, change to the Request New PIN link, and a text change to clarify that rebilling will eliminate the previous billing invoice. These changes were made possible by receiving your suggestions to improve I-Billing. Thank you!
NOTICE: The Michigan Department of Education received notification from the United States Postal Service that first class mailing standards are changing from 1-2 days to 2-3 days. This change will likely delay the receipt of some CDC provider payments. Please plan accordingly. We encourage Licensed and Registered providers to sign up for EFT. We will be updating our policies to extend due dates for information we request from providers and parents.
Tiered Reimbursement Rates for Licensed and Registered Providers with a 3, 4, or 5 Star Rating:
Correspondence and/or Payments received that are not indicating/paying at the new rate and/or DP% indicate that the client's case is most likely not in an Approved status. The client's Eligibility Specialist/Case Worker must complete the case activities to approve CDC eligibility so the increases are applied to the authorized periods. A retroactive, supplemental payment may be issued on billings already submitted once the increases are applied, or you may need to rebill after receiving updated correspondence. Your client is the best resource to communicate with their Eligibility Specialist to request completion of the case action.
Our technical team is researching technical problems with receiving the Star rating information associated with the recent changes to the Tiered Reimbursements.
