December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Section 4: Client Eligibility : 4.4 Restricted Medicaid Coverage : 4.4.2 Client Lock-in Program : Selection of Designated Provider and Pharmacy
Texas Medicaid fee-for-service clients identified for lock-in status can participate in the selection of one primary care provider, primary care pharmacy, or both from a list of participating Medicaid providers. Eligible providers cannot be under administrative action, sanction, or investigation. In general, the designated primary care provider’s specialty is general practice, family practice, or internal medicine. Other specialty providers may be selected on a case-by-case basis. Primary care providers can include, but are not limited to the following:
If the client does not select a primary care provider or primary care pharmacy, HHSC selects one for the client.
When a candidate for the designated provider is determined, HHSC contacts the provider by letter. The designated provider receives a confirmation letter from HHSC that verifies the name of the client confirming the name of the client, primary care provider or primary care pharmacy, and the effective date of the lock-in arrangement.
