2.8 Personal Care Services (PCS) (CCP)
CCP providers that want to participate in the delivery of PCS to Medicaid clients must be enrolled with TMHP and have the appropriate Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) licensure or certification.
All PCS providers must have a TPI and a National Provider Identifier (NPI).
Licensed and certified home health (LCHH) agencies that are currently enrolled through TMHP do not need to enroll as a CCP-PCS provider.
Providers that are currently contracted with DADS to administer consumer-directed services (CDS) or provide PCS through the service responsibility option (SRO), including providers currently enrolled in Texas Medicaid, are required to enroll/reenroll separately as a CDS or SRO provider. Texas Medicaid enrolls only new providers that are currently contracted with DADS to provide PCS through CDS and SRO.
Providers (other than those discussed above) that want to provide PCS to Medicaid clients must enroll through TMHP. Texas Medicaid enrollment rules for PCS participation require providers to have one of the following categories of DADS licensure prior to enrollment:
Additionally, providers must have a TPI in one of the following enrollment categories: LHHS agency, LCHHS agency, or PCS provider.
Providers that are enrolled as any entity other than an LHHS agency or LCHHS agency are required to meet the provider enrollment rules in order to participate in the delivery of PCS through Texas Medicaid.
