5.1 Enrollment
To enroll in Texas Medicaid, an ASC must do the following:
Providers cannot be enrolled if their license is due to expire within 30 days; a current license must be submitted.
All hospitals enrolling in Texas Medicaid (except psychiatric and rehabilitation hospitals) are issued an HASC provider number at the time of enrollment.
An out-of-state provider may enroll in Texas Medicaid if it is the customary or general practice for clients in a particular locality to use medical resources in another state. An out-of-state provider located within 50 miles of the Texas border is automatically considered to meet this criterion.
