Effective July 1, 2017, the Department of Human Services (Department) requires nursing facilities to remit their Quarterly Assessment Payments (QAPs) through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) Credit system and no longer accepts checks for QAPs.
Nursing facilities are required to remit their QAPs by direct payment through the ACH Credit system. The Department has designated two acceptable ACH Credit transaction formats. The Cash Concentration Disbursement (CCD+) format accommodates one addenda record. The Corporate Trade Payment (CTX) format may be used for entities wishing to make payments for more than one nursing facility or for multiple QAPs for the same facility in the same transaction.
Please reference the Nursing Facility Assessment End User Manual located at page 16 for detailed instructions.
