Late fees are automatically calculated and paid by the State Comptroller based on the Texas Prompt Payment Act. The determination of a late fee is based on the receive date and invoice date that are entered into ReHabWorks. The CRS program does not pay late fees that are directly invoiced by the provider.
If a provider submits an invoice that includes a late payment fee:
- do not pay the late fee;
- make a note on the invoice;
- subtract the late fee amount from the invoice total; and
- authorize payment for the corrected amount.
