43.4.16 Speech-Language Pathologists (CCP) Enrollment

HHSC allows enrollment of independently practicing licensed SLPs under THSteps-CCP. Texas Medicaid enrolls and reimburses SLPs for THSteps-CCP services only. This section does not apply to CORFs.

Important: All providers are required to read and comply with Section 1, Provider Enrollment and Responsibilities. In addition to required compliance with all requirements specific to Texas Medicaid, it is a violation of Texas Medicaid rules when a provider fails to provide health-care services or items to Medicaid clients in accordance with accepted medical community standards and standards that govern occupations, as explained in 1 TAC 371.1617(a)(6)(A). Accordingly, in addition to being subject to sanctions for failure to comply with the requirements that are specific to Texas Medicaid, providers can also be subject to Texas Medicaid sanctions for failure, at all times, to deliver health-care items and services to Medicaid clients in full accordance with all applicable licensure and certification requirements including, without limitation, those related to documentation and record maintenance.
