Public Notice: Revised Texas State Plan for Medical Assistance
In the June 7, 2019, issue of the Texas Register, (44 TexReg 2889), the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) published notice of its intent to submit transmittal number 19-0019 to the Texas State Plan for Medical Assistance under Title XIX of the Social Security Act.
The purpose of the amendment is to remove recent revisions to the inflation projection methodology for the Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability (ICF/IID) and to the nursing wage inflation methodology, which affect ICF/IID programs. The proposed amendment reflects HHSC's decision not to use the revised methodology for the nurse inflator calculations at this time.
The proposed amendment is estimated to have no fiscal impact.
The effective date has changed from June 1, 2019, to July 1, 2019.
For questions concerning this revised notice, interested parties may contact Courtney Pool, State Plan Program Coordinator, by mail at the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, P.O. Box 13247, Mail Code H-600, Austin, Texas 78711; by telephone at (512) 424-6889; by facsimile at (512) 730-7472; or by e-mail at Medicaid_Chip_SPA_Inquiries@hhsc.state.tx.us. Copies of the proposed amendment will be available for review at the local county offices of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
