Participation by providers in Texas Medicaid is vital to the successful delivery of Medicaid services, and we welcome your application for enrollment. This application must be completed in its entirety as outlined in the instructions below and will be reviewed by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and the claims contractor Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP). Providers are encouraged to review the current Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual for information about provider responsibilities, claims filing procedures, filing deadlines, benefits and limitations, and much more.

Page i 02/25/13 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Enrollment Requirements Affordable Care Act In compliance with the Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA), all providers are subject to ACA screening procedures for newly enrolling and re-enrolling providers. All participating providers must be screened upon submission of an application, including, but not limited to: · · · Applications for providers that are new to Texas Medicaid. Applications for providers that are requesting new practice locations. Applications for currently enrolled providers that must periodically revalidate their enrollment in Texas Medicaid. Refer to: Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 42 Ch. IV, Subpart E-Provider Screening and Enrollment; and Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 352, for the statutory provisions for these requirements. Provider Screening All providers are categorized by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS)-defined risk levels of limited, moderate, and high based on an assessment of potential for fraud, waste, and abuse for each provider type. Providers will be screened according to their risk level and are subject to various screening activities for each risk level. Risk level assignments may be increased at any time at the discretion of HHSC. In these instances, the provider will be notified by HHSC, and the new risk level will apply to enrollment-related transactions. Provider Revalidation In compliance with ACA, all providers are required to revalidate their enrollment at least every three to five years depending on provider type. Providers will be notified that they are required to revalidate before their revalidation deadline. The ACA screening criteria applies during revalidation. Providers that do not revalidate their enrollment by the designated date will be disenrolled and will no longer receive reimbursement from Texas Medicaid. Application Fees Under ACA, institutional providers and certain other providers are subject to an application fee for applications, including initial applications for new enrollment, applications for a new practice location, and any applications received in response to re-enrollment. Upon completion of the TMHP Provider Enrollment Application, providers will be notified whether they are required to pay an application fee. Note: The application fee is NOT required for providers that have already paid the fee to Medicare, another state's Medicaid program, or another Texas state agency. Providers will be required to provide proof of payment to TMHP. CMS sets the application fee amount, which may be adjusted annually. On rare occasions, CMS may agree to waive the application fee based on proof of financial hardship for a provider. To request a waiver, providers must submit with their enrollment application a letter that supports the request for the financial hardship waiver. The final decision to waive the application fee will be made by CMS. Surety Bonds DME and home health agency suppliers are required to submit proof of a valid surety bond when submitting: 1) an initial enrollment application to enroll in Texas Medicaid, 2) an enrollment application to establish a new practice location, 3) an enrollment application for re-enrollment in Texas Medicaid. The Surety Bond Form can be found on the TMHP website at www.tmhp.com/Pages/Medicaid/medicaid_forms.aspx.
