Re: Publicly Owned Transportation Providers – Ground Emergency Medical
Transportation (GEMT) Supplemental Payments
This notice informs providers enrolled in the Ground
Emergency Medical Transportation (GEMT) program that amounts due for the second
payment are currently available in JetPay and are due by April 30, 2021.
The first payment was due October 31, 2020. If the first
payment has not yet been made, JetPay will have that information as well. Past
due payments should be made immediately.
JetPay and checks are the only methods of payment. The
link to the JetPay website for making payments is:
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
Bureau of Fiscal
Operations – GEMT
PO Box 19491
How the Amount Due is Calculated:
This amount is based on enhanced payments for claims
adjudicated during the second and third quarters of 2020 in the Fee-for-Service
system with dates of service back to the provider’s effective date in the GEMT
program. The amount due is 50% of amounts received above prior base
Further questions on the program should be sent to HFS.GEMT@illinois.gov.
