Observation Stays No Longer Subject to Concurrent Review

Texas Medicaid Providers—Re-Enrollment/Revalidation Deadline Extended to Sept. 25, 2016

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

An update for Texas Medicaid providers on their current re-enrollment/revalidation in the Texas Medicaid Program.  
 
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced that the previous March 24, 2016 deadline for Medicaid provider re-enrollment has been extended to
Sunday, September 25, 2016.
Though this extension gives the State of Texas additional time to ensure providers comply with Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requirements, Texas Medicaid encourages all providers who have not yet submitted their re-enrollment application to begin this process immediately to avoid potential payment disruptions.

Note: This deadline extension also applies for CSHCN Services Program Hospice and Medical Foods providers.

Additional information will be announced soon to assist the providers currently working on the re-enrollment process.

For more information, please call the TMHP Contact Center at 1.800.925.9126 (select "Option 2") or the TMHPCSHCN Services Program Contact Center at 1.800.568.2413.
