The payment process

There are five main steps in the calculation and payment of subsidies and fees:

  1. Session reports are submitted by the provider
  2. Calculation of entitlements and payments
  3. Statements of Entitlement are issued to families by providers
  4. Providers invoice families
  5. Reconciliation.

The process is outlined in Figure 3, and each step (1-5) is described in more detail in the following sections.
