Questions Asked:

  1. Contract period- It indicates it shall commence on 9/1/22. Our concern is that the SSA wouldn’t have the time to change the payee for these individuals in that timeframe as we are seeing applications that are taking 3+ months for the SSA to approve. How would that be handled if the SSA couldn’t meet that timeline?
  2. Would those rent/ room and board payments be considered received “on time” if it were the 10th or so of the month?

Questions Answered:

  1. Horizon Behavioral Health will have to wait until the payee is approved by SSA. We will not be able to move forward until that happens regardless of the date.
  2. Yes, the payment would be considered on time
