Re: Publicly Owned Transportation Providers – Ground Emergency Medical Transportation (GEMT) Transfer Payment Deadline Extension through November 30, 2020
This notice informs providers of a deadline extension for making Ground Emergency Medical Transportation (GEMT) transfers to the Department.
Due to Department delays in issuing log-in codes for the JetPay electronic payment system and recognizing the need for municipalities to often get Board approval for payments, the Department is extending the deadline through November 30th for Local Governments to make GEMT transfers to HFS.
As stated in the October 5, 2020 provider notice, Local Governments that want to pay by check should email HFS at HFS.GEMT@illinois.gov to verify their amount due. To pay by check, send checks to:
Bureau of Fiscal Operations – GEMT
PO Box 19491
Springfield, IL 62794-9491
In order to facilitate the mailing of paper invoices in the future, all GEMT participating providers should send an email to HFS.GEMT@illinois.gov identifying the physical mailing address for the invoices.
