2012 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Children’s Services Handbook : 5. THSteps Medical : 5.1 THSteps Medical and Dental Administrative Information : 5.1.6 THSteps Medical Checkup Facilities

All THSteps medical checkup policies apply to checkups completed in a physician’s office, a health department, clinic setting, or in a mobile/satellite unit. Enrollment of a mobile/satellite unit must be under a physician or clinic name. Mobile units can be a van or any area away from the primary office and are considered extensions of that office and are not separate entities.
The physical setting must be appropriate so that all elements of the checkup can be completed. For specific information, review the policy narrative included in this manual and the periodicity schedule.
