Nursery Milk
We sent a letter to the Department of Health’s Health Foods Schemes last month highlighting that some of the issues we discussed about the Nursery Milk Reimbursement Unit during our recent meeting – including the issues facing the 400 settings with incorrect start dates and 1,500 settings which had claimed for November before September and October – still needed to be resolved. We also noted that at present, schools are only able to claim at the end of the month, setting up problems for July claims that would have to be made during the school holidays.
The Department of Health responded that the software for correcting the issues with incorrect dates and November claims made before September and October claims were in place, but that a need to manually process claims due to errors in the NMRU’s correction list had delayed the resolution of the problems. The Department of Health added that, barring unexpected issues, provisions to submit claims in early July would be in place by the end of May.
