SECTION 520.100 AUTHORIZATION FOR PURCHASED SERVICES
Section 520.100 Authorization for Purchased Services
a) In authorizing purchased services, it should be remembered that under Section 50-13 of the Illinois Procurement Code [30 ILCS 500/50-13] DHS cannot pay for services from some State employees, even if provided on their own time, without the granting of an exemption. If a proposed authorization is with a State employee, the DHS-DRS supervisor shall submit the proposed authorization to the Department of Central Management Services (CMS) for review in compliance with Subpart P of 44 Ill. Adm. Code 1 (Standard Procedures – Ethics).
b) Unless specified in subsection (c), amounts authorized for purchased services shall constitute total charges and payment in full for those services. For vocational rehabilitation customers, such amounts shall be less comparable benefits (89 Ill. Adm. Code 567). Providers shall not charge customers with fees or portions of fees for services authorized by DHS-DRS.
c) Customer financial participation (89 Ill. Adm. Code 562.40) and customer informed choice (89 Ill. Adm. Code 557.20) may result in additional cost to the vocational rehabilitation customer.
