Per Texas DSHS policy, TB clinics must develop and operate under a set of written policies and procedures that specify the criteria for licensed and non-licensed staff to provide services. The policies and procedures must include the following:
Upon written notice of approval by TB Services Branch, Medicaid enrollment applications from TMHP Provider Enrollment are sent to HHSC-approved providers of TB-related clinic services.
TMHP is responsible for issuing a group or individual a nine-digit provider identifier. Providers that list additional (satellite) clinics in the TB Services Branch provider application will receive nine-digit performing provider identifiers for each off-site clinic. TB off-site clinics operating under the jurisdiction of the applying provider must use the assigned group provider identifier and their nine-digit performing provider identifier.
Enrollment as a Medicaid provider is not complete until the TMHP enrollment packet has been finalized and a nine-digit provider identifier number is issued to the provider.
The effective date for participation is the date an approved provider application with the TB Services Branch is established.
