Children’s Services Handbook : 2. Medicaid Children’s Services Comprehensive Care Program (CCP) : 2.8 Personal Care Services (PCS) (CCP) : 2.8.2 Services, Benefits, and Limitations : Place of Services
PCS may be provided in the following settings if medically necessary:
Texas Medicaid does not reimburse providers for PCS that duplicate services that are the legal responsibility of school districts. The school district, through the School Health and Related Services (SHARS) program, is required to meet the client’s personal care needs while the client is at school. If those needs cannot be met by SHARS or the school district, the school district must submit documentation to the DSHS case manager indicating the school district is unable to provide all medically necessary services. When clients are receiving both PCS and PDN services from an individual person over the same span of time, the combined total number of hours for PCS and PDN are reimbursed according to the maximum allowable rate.
