December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Section 5: Fee‑for‑Service Prior Authorizations : 5.1 General Information About Prior Authorization : 5.1.6 Prior Authorizations for Personal Care Services (PCS) : Verifying the Texas Provider Identifier (TPI) on PCS Authorizations
When an authorization notification letter is received by a PCS provider, the provider should verify that the correct TPI was used on the prior authorization for the PCS client. Providers must verify that the TPI on the prior authorization is correct for the location at which the client is receiving services.
Providers who provide services through the Agency option or the Consumer Directed Services (CDS) option must ensure that the TPI on the prior authorization is accurate for the option the client is using. If a provider discovers that the TPI used on the prior authorization is incorrect, the provider should contact the DSHS case manager and ask for the correct TPI to be submitted to TMHP.
