December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Section 1: Provider Enrollment and Responsibilities : 1.1 Provider Enrollment and Reenrollment : 1.1.5 Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) Enrollment Requirements : Application Fee
Under ACA, institutional providers are subject to an application fee for applications, including initial applications, applications for new practice locations, and re-enrollment applications. Upon completion of the PEP online application, providers will be notified whether they are required to pay an application fee. The amount of the application fee is subject to change every calendar year.
Providers that complete the paper Texas Medicaid Provider Enrollment Application can refer to the TMHP website for the list of provider types that are required to pay the application fee.
Providers that are required to pay the application fee but have already paid the fee to Medicare or another state’s Medicaid program or CHIP have fulfilled the fee requirement and do not have to submit the fee to Texas Medicaid. Proof of payment must be submitted with the application. Providers who are enrolled in Medicare must provide documentation that specifies whether or not they have completed the ACA rescreening process with Medicare.
