December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Medical Transportation Program Handbook : 3 Lodging Provider : 3.2 Prior Authorization for Lodging Providers

3.2
An MTP client must contact MTP to request a lodging stay to initiate the claims process for lodging providers.
When MTP authorizes a request from the client for a lodging stay, the lodging provider will be sent the approved authorization and information including the client’s name and the date of stay. Each approved authorization is for one overnight stay and will have a unique authorization number.
Each overnight stay must be authorized by MTP, and a separate claim form must be submitted to TMHP for each individual overnight stay. It is the lodging provider’s responsibility to obtain the MTP client’s signature on each authorization form before it is submitted to TMHP.
