Instructions for setting up the IHMVCU bank account

1. Provide the "Bank Account Form" (CHR Forms page #2) to CHR

2. Once you are added to the bank account that we set up for you, you will receive a confirmation email
asking you to electronically sign documents from IHMVCU. This has a 48-hour deadline before
needing to be reset by Aileen at IHMVCU.

3. Sign the electronic document that has been sent by the bank. You will need the passcode created by
the bank.
     a. The passcode is: your last name (first letter is capitalized) with the last 4 numbers of your social
         security number
     b. Ex: Smith1234

     Note: after completing this step you will receive an email that says your application is pending. The bank
     is going to double check all provided information to make sure it matches what is on file.

4. Go to:
    a. Complete the enrolment form

          i. During this step you will need: 

               1. Account number
               2. Your first and last name, date of birth, social security number
               3. Your zip code
               4. After the username and password are created online, please download the IHMVCU app from the app
                   store to login to your account through the mobile platform. This will allow you to transfer from your
                   linked bank account or deposit money through the app (max of $4,000 per mobile deposit) and
                   access other useful features.


On the bottom of this page:
There are a few videos to help you become familiar with mobile banking
through the IHMVCU app.


This is the account you will deposit your tax-deductible CHR monthly donation and payroll
(minimum wage in your area plus taxes for 30 hours per week) into by the 15th of every month,
and your monthly payroll and monthly donation will be paid out of. You can donate (tax-deductible) 100% out of
your business account (Pre-tax).

We suggest an automatic bank transfer into your new CHR/IHMVCU is set up to make sure
sufficient funds are always available. Monthly dues and monthly payroll donations are required by the 15th of every month. The bank would be more that happy to assist you with setting up an auto bank transfer.  


For auto bank transfer help:

Call (309)793-6200 (The hours of operation are M-F 7am-7pm CST, Sat 8am-1pm CST)

Select option 3 (speak with an IH team member)

Then select option 2 (online banking and bill support)

Ask for help with External Funds Transfer set up.

They will verify your identity before you speak with them.
Have your account information ready.

Monthly donations for Payroll and dues are the only use for this bank account!

Step 3: Payroll Arrangements

Gusto will send you an email to fill out the required information to have your monthly payroll processed
directly out of the IHMVCU / CHR bank account.

We suggest following the easy to use, step by step directions on Gusto’s mobile app. It is a
convenient way to use their resources.

Step 4: Train to get Donations

Donations. Rounding up and care plan donations are both acceptable forms of donation
generation at your front desk. We are currently making a video demonstrating how your staff can do
this in a simple and easygoing way. Rounding up is simply asking patients to round their payment up to
the nearest dollar. You will need to code (CHR-d) this donation so you can keep track of donations. Here
is a simple script.

         “Your next appointment is set for Thursday at 4pm Steph. Hey Steph, does Doctor Smith do a
           good job for you?”


         “Would you mind rounding your payment up to the nearest dollar to help deliver care to families in our
           community that cannot afford it?”

         “Sure, I’d be glad to help”

Most offices experience that about 75% of patients are willing to throw change in to help others
and it adds up fast. After one or two times asking, most people will say with a smile, “Jean, you don’t
have to ask, just throw it in”.


Grants: We plan on being able to hire a grant writing assistant by the end of 2023. In the
meantime, if you have knowledge or experience, please share it with us.

Public donation generation: There are many different avenues to generate donations in the
public domain and we would love new ideas that we can share. One avenue you can pursue is your local Sam’s Club & Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart’s & Sam’s Clubs have a $1,000.00-$1,500.00 grant per entity per store for non-profit organizations. You must apply to set up a table at the location bringing printed materials to educate the public and at the same time you can ask for donations. One subchapter has been doing this gets first aid kits donated by the Salvation Army as donation gifts and has generated $650 plus the $1,500 donation from Sam’s Club in a (4) hour period. 


Step 5: Operational Expenses

Operational expenses that you donate (monthly dues) to fund biennial reports, accounting at the parental
level, monthly payroll processing, and tax filing are already arranged for. This monthly donation is set up on an
automatic process; you just need to make sure funds are available each month. Please remember that at
the parental level we are trying to keep the operational expenses as low as possible so please keep this
account funded adequately.

Step 6: Continue to process your payroll through Gusto

Processing payroll through the non-profit is essential to registering your employment as a non-
profit employee. It is the federal income tax withholding via IRS form 941(we file) that is necessary to record
your employment.


Step 7: Complete the Employment Certification form Yearly

Go to:

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) & Temporary Expanded PSLF (TEPSLF)
Certification & Application

APPLICATION. William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program

Complete the Employment Certification form each year. When you do this, it will automatically let
you know how many of your student loan payments qualify you to move towards loan forgiveness
through the PSLF program.


Step 8: Deliver Care & Education

Continue to fulfill your requirement to deliver care and educate each month. If you exceed the
minimum that is awesome. Free or reduced fee care ($500 value minimum per month) and education
(one lecture per month, per clinic).
The care you give changes people's lives for generations and fulfils your public service requirement.

Step 9: Help other Providers

When you tell friends and help expand the free care, we deliver to the public we help you. For
each practitioner you help get involved, we will subsidize a month of operational expenses. Pay it
forward and help your friends serve and get the rewards Community HealthCare Resources offers its
employee providers.


Step 10: Save Money through the Affiliate Program

Keep checking our website partners page PARTNERS( as we add business partners to our list of affiates that give you that give you discounts for being a giving person. Saving money in your for-profit business is a bonus for helping others. You can save on things like a no fee to you, credit card processing terminal or 10% off digital marketing. As we add companies, we will keep you posted.


Step 11: Apply for Public Service Loan Forgiveness

After making 120 qualifying payments you can apply for Public Service Student Loan
Forgiveness (PSLF). This is the big reward we all work towards. Enjoy the economic and mental relief

retiring your student loans delivers early by filing your Employment Certification Form and plan on what
you will do with the additional income.
