When Will Payments Flow, and What Should My Company be Focusing on Now?
As announced at ACA Connects’ last C-band Transition webinar, on August 16th the Clearinghouse began accepting transition-related reimbursement claims from entities with approved profiles in the Clearinghouse’s Coupa claims processing system. Payments finally appear to be on track to be issued. But when? And how do you know if your company has done what it needs to secure lump sum payments, or if you did not elect the lump sum, obtain reimbursement for self-installation activities and/or equipment purchases? Ms. Chapeton and Ms. Gibbs of the Clearinghouse will address these and related issues.
Meanwhile, with three months to go before conclusion of Phase I of the transition, operators with one or more earth stations in or near Phase I areas should have had “red” filters installed on their antennas, or have plans to do so very soon. By now, the satellite operators were scheduled to have completed red filter installations at all non-lump sum electing earth stations in Phase I areas. Hear from Tom McNamara and Steve Corda about the status of those efforts, and what they are hearing about the supply of red filters, which should be of interest to operators that elected the lump sum and have not yet purchased their filters (hint: you should do so NOW). Among other updates, they also will look ahead to the beginning of Phase II transition activities, and address how lump sum electors will receive spare IRDs to which they are entitled.
As always, there will be ample time for live Q&A.
ACA Connects encourages Members to have all your employees who are performing transition tasks to individually register for this webinar. Due to the volume and depth of key information presented, and the questions we continue to receive, at these webinars, we have scheduled this webinar for 90 minutes. Come prepared with questions, or submit them in advance when you register!
