2012 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Children’s Services Handbook : 4. Texas Health Steps (THSteps) Dental : 4.2 Services, Benefits, Limitations, and Prior Authorization : 4.2.2 Comprehensive Care Program (CCP)

The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1989 mandated the expansion of the federal EPSDT program to include any service that is medically necessary and for which federal financial participation (FFP) is available, regardless of the limitations of Texas Medicaid. This expansion is referred to as the Comprehensive Care Program (CCP).
CCP services are provided only for those clients who are birth through 20 years of age who are eligible to receive THSteps services. When the client becomes 21 years of age, all CCP benefits stop. Dental services that are a benefit through CCP are designated in the Limitations column of the Medicaid dental fee schedules beginning in subsection 4.2.11, “Diagnostic Services” of this handbook, with the notation “CCP.”
