Update to ‘Telemonitoring Benefits to Change for Texas Medicaid October 1, 2020’

Last updated on 10/1/2020

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.

This is a correction to the article titled, "Telemonitoring Benefits to Change for Texas Medicaid October 1, 2020," which was published on this website August 14, 2020.

The article stated telemonitoring equipment must be capable of measuring and transmitting client weight, oxygen levels in blood, glucose levels in blood, and blood pressure data.

Following is the corrected statement:

  • The telemonitoring equipment must be capable of measuring and transmitting client weight, oxygen levels in blood, glucose levels in blood, or blood pressure data.
