Section 5: Fee‑for‑Service Prior Authorizations : 5.4 Submitting Prior Authorization Forms : 5.4.1 Recreating TMHP Prior Authorization and Authorization Forms to Fill Out Electronically

5.4.1
Providers are allowed to recreate a Texas Medicaid or CSHCN Services Program prior authorization or authorization form in order to transfer it to an electronic format only if there are no alterations in the form’s content or placement of information (field location).
To ensure that the most current version of the form is utilized, all forms submitted to the prior authorization department for processing must include the form number, effective date and revision date, if applicable, as it appears on the original TMHP form that is published on the TMHP Forms web page.
Important:
Prior authorization and authorization forms recreated and filled out electronically on the provider’s computer must continue to be printed and faxed or submitted by mail. To submit prior authorization and authorization requests electronically, providers must use the prior authorization tool available on the TMHP website by clicking “I would like to…” and “Submit a prior authorization request.”
