PROCEDURE: Complete this form IN BLUE OR BLACK INK each month a child is in care. This form is completed by the child care provider. Complete a separate billing form when there is more than one Authorization for the child in one th month. Return this form to the local DFS office no later than the 5 working day of the month. Bills received by DFS 90 days or more after the month of the service WILL NOT be honored. SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS: • Fill in all of the information at the top of the form. • The provider’s number, case number, and information about the number of authorized hours and DFS payment amounts can be found on the Authorization Form (DFS-200). Do not bill DFS for child care services before you have received the Authorization Form. • Using each child’s attendance record, fill in the time the child is left at the center/home under the “time-in” section and enter the time the child is picked up under the “time-out” section. There is an additional “time-in” and “time-out” column to be used if the child enters and leaves the center/home again during the day. For example, all of the columns would be filled out if the child left the center/home to attend school and returned to the child care facility later in the day. • Child Care assistance is only authorized for the times the parent/caretaker is either working or attending school. Only bill DFS for this time. Any child care that is used by the parent outside of work or school hours should be billed directly to the parent and not included on the bill to DFS. • Enter the total time the child was in child care at the center/home each day. Round the total time for each day to the nearest one-quarter hour under the “Hours” column. Any time within 8 minutes is considered a quarter hour. Child Care providers may attach their own time record log to verify the time the child was in care if both the provider and parent/caretaker have signed and dated the log sheet. • Licensed providers who are paid on a part or full day basis should check the appropriate column. The following calculation should be used to determine which charge is appropriate: Full day = 5 or more hours per day. Part day = Less than 5 hours per day. Complete the PAYMENT CALCULATION as follows: • Using the Authorization Form (DFS 200), enter the rates shown on the authorization for the appropriate type(s) of payment for both DFS and the parent. • Enter the following information in the unshaded areas of the billing calculation table: A. Authorized Time Attended: Enter the number of hours, part days and/or full days the child was in your care while the parent was working or attending school. B. DFS Rate x Time Attended: Multiply the DFS rate for the type of care times the number of authorized hours, part days and/or full days the child was in care. Enter the total in this area. C. Provider’s Usual Rate: Enter the amount you charge for this amount of care. If your facility has full time, monthly or weekly rates and this is the amount of payment you would expect from all of your paying customers, enter this amount in the full day rate section. If your rates are set on an hourly, part or full day basis, multiply your rates by the hours part days and/or full days attended and enter this amount in the appropriate section. D. Parent's Portion: Multiply the Parent's Rate from the authorization times the Authorized Time Attended in section "A". The remainder of the Payment Calculation will be completed by DFS for use in issuing payment.
