RULE §108.1431HHSC ECI Sliding Fee Scale

(a) The contractor must provide the family with a copy of the HHSC ECI sliding fee scale. Based on family size and income, placement on the HHSC ECI sliding fee scale determines the family's maximum charge for services received in one calendar month.

(b) The HHSC ECI sliding fee scale assigns a set dollar amount as the maximum charge for adjusted income ranges less than or equal to 1000 percent of the federal poverty level. HHSC calculates the maximum charge for each income range by applying a fixed percentage (ranging from 0.25 to 5 percent) to the mid-point income within each range based on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services most recently published Federal Poverty Levels.

(c) For children and families who enroll in ECI services on or after September 1, 2015, the family's maximum charge shall be pursuant to Figure: 40 TAC §108.1431(c) identified in this subsection. If the parent refuses to attest in writing that information about their third-party coverage, family size, and gross income is true and accurate, then the family monthly maximum payment equals the full cost of services.
