The Texas Healthcare Transformation and Quality Improvement Program 1115
Waiver allows for payments to hospitals and to certain physician practice groups
to defray the uncompensated cost of medical services that are provided to
Medicaid-eligible or uninsured individuals. To qualify for an uncompensated care
(UC) payment for demonstration year one (federal fiscal year 2012), providers
must submit a properly completed UC application to the Texas Health and Human
Services Commission (HHSC).
