All new enrollment, revalidation, and re-enrollment applications submitted on or after March 1, 2020, and before the end of the federally-approved public health emergency will be exempt from the requirements to submit proof of fingerprinting and undergo pre-enrollment and post-enrollment site visits (as applicable to the provider type).
Providers with an application inflight after March 1, 2020, were enrolled in Texas Medicaid or the Children with Special Healthcare Needs (CSHCN) Services Program but did not undergo a site visit or have to submit fingerprints for a background check due to the public emergency federal waiver.
After the public health emergency has ended, providers requiring a site visit or fingerprinting to meet state and federal enrollment requirements will be notified by TMHP.
For more information, call the TMHP Contact Center at 800-925-9126 or the TMHP-CSHCN Services Program Contact Center at 800-568-2413.
