 ISS Survey From July 2023:
HHSC posted a survey (9 questions) asking comprehensive service providers to complete.  The survey is intended to gather information about ISS network adequacy and to determine what, if any changes, are needed.   CMS  is hoping to use the data to find out how the transition is going.
HHSC stated that it only received 262 responses, some were incomplete, and some were completed by an ISS only (independent ISS) provider.
Action Needed:  HHSC is reopening the survey and asked that we urge all of our members who are comprehensive survey providers (not independent ISS providers) to complete the survey.  The deadline for completing the survey is August 31, 2023.
