Note: Texas Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs) must provide all medically necessary, Medicaid-covered services to eligible clients. Administrative procedures such as prior authorization, pre-certification, referrals, and claims/encounter data filing may differ from traditional Medicaid (fee-for-service) and from MCO to MCO. Providers should contact the client's specific MCO for details.
Beginning October 1, 2018, TMHP will update the Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual, Children’s Services Handbook, Section 22.214.171.124.4, “Postpartum Depression Screening,” to correct a typo in procedure code G8540. The procedure code should be listed as G8510 and will be updated.
