TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to state reimbursement to certain day care centers
PURPOSE: To require the State provide reimbursement to days care providers within 30 days of the receipt of an invoice for services.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Paragraph (b) of subdivision 2 of section 410-c of the social services law, as added by chapter 1014 of the laws of 1969 and such section as renumbered by chapter 640 of the laws of 1971, is amended to require payment within thirty days of an invoice being submitted to the State.
JUSTIFICATION: This legislation would allow for the prompt payment of expenditures made by counties, cities, and towns for day care and its administration. Currently, the State is under no set time limit to reimburse these costs. The localities are forced to payout of pocket for their costs related to providing day care services, with no way of knowing when they might be reimbursed.
This proposal would set forth a timeline for reimbursements and allows the localities a greater ability to plan and manage their finances related to day care services.
