December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Women’s Health Services Handbook : 2 Healthy Texas Women (HTW) Program Overview : 2.1 Guidelines for HTW Providers : 2.1.1 Referrals

2.1.1
If a provider identifies a health problem that is not within their scope of practice, the provider must refer the HTW client to another doctor or clinic that can treat her. As mandated by Texas Human Resources Code, Section 32.024(c-1), HTW does not reimburse for office visits where HTW clients are referred for elective abortions.
HHSC prefers that clients be referred to local indigent care services. However, the toll-free Information and Referral hotline 2-1-1, can assist clients and providers with locating low-cost health services for clients in need.
