Inpatient and Outpatient Hospital Services Handbook : 2. Enrollment : 2.1 Hospital Eligibility Through Change of Ownership

2.1 Hospital Eligibility Through Change of Ownership
Under procedures set forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a change in ownership of a hospital does not terminate Medicare eligibility; therefore, Medicaid participation may be continued if the hospital obtains recertification as a Title XVIII (Medicare) hospital and a new Title XIX (Medicaid) agreement between the hospital and HHSC.
To obtain the Medicaid hospital participation agreement, providers may call the TMHP Contact Center at 1-800-925-9126, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Central Time.
Refer to:
Subsection 1.3, “Provider Reenrollment,” in Section 1, “Provider Enrollment and Responsibilities” (Vol. 1, General Information).
