Updated CCAP Payment Information
Beginning Dec. 1, 2022, CCAP payments will be paid based on enrollment rather than attendance. CCAP for children attending a childcare facility in November will be paid based on the enrollment on the CCAP certificate prefilled on the provider billing form.
All licensed, certified and registered providers will submit the billing form blank, unless the prefilled codes do not accurately reflect the child’s schedule and an exception needs to be made. Exclusions to this rule are listed in the Flex Schedules and ITCS Centers sections.
All flex schedule enrollments will need to be coded according to the child’s actual attendance using codes 1 and 2. If a flex schedule billing form is left blank, payment will not occur.
Infant/toddler contract slot participants will need to use the special 700 codes when submitting the billing form to ensure correct payments. The 700 codes should be used only for children/slots enrolled in the ITCS program.
Important Copay Information
The Division of Child Care will stop paying the parent CCAP copay portion Dec. 31, 2022. Beginning Jan. 1, 2023 parents will be responsible for the assessed copay on the certificate and any overages. An overage is the difference between the state max rate and what a center charges daily if more than the state max rate.
