Provider Enrollment on the Portal
A Step-by-Step Guide
These pages will guide you through the process of enrolling as a Medicaid or other State Health-Care Program provider using TMHP's Provider Enrollment on the Portal (PEP) tool. PEP is the easiest and most efficient way to enroll in State Health-Care Programs.
To begin, please select the type of application you will be completing. The Application Type you select will determine how TMHP processes your application. Depending on your selection you may receive a new Texas Provider Identifier (TPI)A unique 9-digit number used to identify state health-care program providers..
Click on an option below for a description of each application type:
A new enrollment refers to a provider (i.e., individual, performing provider, group, or facility) that has never been issued a Texas Provider Identifier (TPI).
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires providers to submit a revalidation application at the end of their enrollment period. Providers can find the effective dates of their enrollment period on their initial Provider Welcome letter. Providers should submit their revalidation applications at least 90 days before the end of their enrollment period so that it can be processed before the enrollment period ends. Providers who do not complete the revalidation process by the last effective date of their enrollment period must submit a re-enrollment application.
Select this option if you are currently enrolled, but have a new Medicare number, a new practice location, a change of ownership, a new provider type or specialty, or to enroll in additional State Health-Care Programs.
A re-enrollment is when a provider submits an enrollment application after being disenrolled, terminated, excluded, or otherwise removed as a provider. The provider will receive the same risk category assignment and go through the same provider screening activities as a newly enrolling provider.
