HHSC Publishes Guidance for FMSAs and CDS Employers for COVID-19 (IL 2021-46)

Last updated on 10/4/2021

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) has published IL 2021-46 Guidance for FMSAs and Consumer Directed Services (CDS) Employers for COVID-19 (PDF).

Financial management services agencies (FMSAs), consumer-directed services (CDS) employers, and designated representatives (DRs)must comply with state and federal laws, rules, regulations, and letters about their Medicaid services. Due to the escalating situation of COVID-19, HHSC allows FMSAs to suspend face-to-face CDS employer orientations and reminds CDS employers and DRs that a service backup plan is required and should be in place. FMSAs are required to share the information contained in this letter with CDS employers and DRs.
