Claims & Forms Submissions:   

The March 1 release of claims and forms submissions to Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership is postponed to May 1, 2022.

  • Home and Community-based Services
  • Texas Home Living program providers

Providers should continue to use the Client Assignment and Registration system for submitting claims and forms until May 1, 2022.

The postponement allows more time for Providers to set up the necessary TMHP accounts and take relevant training courses. Future webinars covering information related to this change, including submission of claims and forms to TMHP, will be announced on the TMHP LTC homepage.

Next Steps:  What Does This Mean?

In the time leading up to this transition, Providers can prepare by:

  • Setting up all necessary accounts if they have not already done so. Please refer to the article, HCS and TxHmL Programs: Continue to Submit Claims and Forms Using CARE System Until May 1, 2022, for information about account set-up, upcoming webinars and training resources.
  • Keeping claims submissions current in Intellectual Disability Client Assignment and Registration (ID-CARE).
  • Submitting Intellectual Disability/Related Condition (ID/RC) and Individual Plan of Care (IPC) renewals in a timely manner.
  • Completing Client Assignment and Registration (CARE) data entry.
  • Reconciling any errors relating to location exceptions.

Providers can refer to the HCS and TxHmL Waiver Programs Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) or contact the TMHP EDI Help Desk at 888-863-3638 with questions.

In case you have not see the banner in The CARE system, the  HCS/TxHmL migration to THMP has been delayed until 5/1/2022, thankfully!  

Hopefully, this will give ample time for providers to attend live training on the migration, set up their portals if they have not done so already, and also take the CBT training modules for billing in TMHP on the E-learning portal.  

Since the go-live date for the CARE migration to TMHP has been moved from March 1 to May 1, 2022,  HHSC and TMHP will not move forward with the claims training they were planning to conduct next week. (Week of Feb. 28th-March 4th) 
****Twogether Consulting will keep you posted on the date change for this training.

See the banner below from CARE: 

“Migration of HCS/TxHmL data and claims entry to THMP is being delayed. This is to allow for more detailed claims training and account setup with TMHP. All Provider and LIDDA CARE data entry screens have been restored and are now available. Billing screens remain available. DO NOT SUBMIT HCS/TxHmL FORMS ON THE TMHP LONG-TERM CARE ONLINE PORTAL. More information to follow.”
