1.2.3
The Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Authorization Agreement can be found as Form 1.5 in this section and on the TMHP website at www.tmhp.com. Completed EFT forms can be faxed to 1‑512‑514‑4214, or mailed to:
Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership
Attn: Provider Enrollment
PO Box 200795
Austin, TX 78720-0795
To enroll for EFT, providers must submit a completed Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Authorization Agreement to TMHP. A voided check or letter on bank letterhead, containing the bank routing and account information, must be attached to the enrollment form. One completed form must be filled out for each billing provider identifier, including an original signature of the provider.
After the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Authorization Agreement has been processed, TMHP issues a prenotification transaction during the next cycle directly to the provider’s bank account. This transaction serves as a checkpoint to verify EFT is working correctly.
If the bank returns the prenotification without errors, the provider will begin receiving EFT transactions with the third cycle following the enrollment form processing. Providers will continue to receive paper checks until they begin to receive EFT transactions.
If the provider changes bank accounts, the provider must submit a new Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Authorization Agreement to TMHP Provider Enrollment. The prenotification process is repeated and, once completed, the EFT transaction is deposited to the new bank account.
