  • Providers who update their status in the portal anytime until January 15th should expect to receive the survey approximately one week after completing the update. The certification and banking information will be sent one week after that.
  • The earliest payments will start to go out is January 20th, but providers and programs are encouraged to get the paperwork done and submitted back to the OEC as quickly as possible! The sooner it’s submitted, the faster providers will receive payment.
  • Providers still concerned about this process should reach out to OEC to share their concerns, so that they can be addressed on the FAQ page as quickly as possible!  Please email cdhs_oec_communications@state.co.us and use “CCRG” in the title.
