CHAMPS pay cycle 40 payments (pay date 10/05/2017) and RAs will be delayed and pushed into pay cycle 41 (pay date 10/12/2017).  Please be mindful as there will be no payments and RAs generated on 10/05/2017; pay cycles 40 and 41 payments and RAs from CHAMPS will be combined on pay date 10/12/2017.

In the event issues may arise given the transition from MAIN to SIGMA, MDHHS will immediately notify providers.
