Delay to Kidney Health Care (KHC) Program Enrollment Changes

Last updated on 12/14/2021

The Kidney Health Care Program (KHC) transition to the Provider Enrollment and Management System (PEMS) and termination of existing agreements have been delayed. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is planning for these program changes and agreement terminations to take place in early to mid-2022, but until HHSC issues an official notice with the revised timelines, all existing providers should continue providing KHC clients services according to existing KHC provider agreements.

To prepare for the new KHC provider enrollment process, HHSC program staff recommend that existing providers review the additional information at about enrollment using the new PEMS at TMHP.

All questions regarding this matter should be sent to Office of Primary and Specialty Health (OPSH) Provider Enrollment via email at
