HFS FY2020 Hospital Inpatient & Outpatient Assessment Program Notice

July 25, 2019


HFS Mails Fiscal Year 2020 Hospital Inpatient and Outpatient Assessment Program Notice – July Assessment Due Date is July 31, 2019

The Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) has posted a notice indicating that it has mailed each hospital the facility’s inpatient and outpatient assessment remittance notices for fiscal year 2020.  Please note the July 2019 assessment is due the last day of the month – on July 31, 2019.  For August 2019 through June 2020, the due dates are the 17th business day of the month.

Your inpatient and outpatient assessment amounts are the same amounts that you paid every month in FY 2019.  Most likely you will not receive your remittance notices by July 31; however, your assessment is due that day, and if not paid you will be subject to penalties.  

Hospitals must remit the monthly assessments using the Illinois State Treasurer’s E-Pay Program.  In order to use this service, your hospital will need an Internet connection, checking account information (bank routing number and account number), from which the payment will be made, and the hospital’s current remittance card.  If your hospital is not familiar with the Illinois State Treasurer’s E-Pay Program, contact the Bureau of Hospital and Provider Services at (217) 524-7110.

In addition, each hospital is responsible for ensuring debit authorizations can be initiated from designated accounts in the appropriate dollar amount.  The following are company identification numbers to be given to your banking institution, if debit block filters are used on the hospital’s account.  Use 1810599849 or 9810599849 for these transactions.

Following are instructions for remitting payment:
