December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Section 4: Client Eligibility : 4.11 Medicare and Medicaid Dual Eligibility : 4.11.4 Medicare Part C

Providers can receive information about a client’s Medicare Part C eligibility through TexMedConnect or EDI. In response to an eligibility inquiry, providers receive the client’s Medicare Part C eligibility effective date, end date, and add date.
HHSC contracts with some Medicare Advantage Plans (MAPs) and offers a per-client-per-month payment. The payment to the MAP includes all costs associated with the Medicaid cost sharing for dual-eligible clients. MAPs that contract with HHSC will reimburse providers directly for the cost sharing obligations that are attributable to dual-eligible clients enrolled in the MAP. These payments are included in the capitated rate paid to the HMO and must not be billed to TMHP or a Medicaid client.
TMHP now processes certain claims for clients enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C).
Refer to:
A list of MAPs that have contracted with HHSC is available in the “EDI” section of the TMHP website at The list will be updated as additional plans initiate contracts.
