Vision and HearingServices Handbook : 2 Nonimplantable Hearing Aid Devices and Related Services : 2.1 Enrollment

2.1
To enroll in Texas Medicaid, hearing aid professionals (physicians, audiologists, and hearing aid fitters and dispensers) who provide hearing evaluations or fitting and dispensing services must be licensed by the licensing board of their profession to practice in the state where the service is performed. Hearing aid providers are eligible to enroll as individuals and facilities. Audiologists are eligible to enroll as individuals and groups. Audiologists may enroll as both audiologists and as hearing aid fitters and dispensers by completing an enrollment application for each type of provider (i.e., select “Audiologist” on one application and “Hearing Aid” on the other application).
Providers cannot be enrolled if their license is due to expire within 30 days. A current license must be submitted.
