Delay to CSHCN Family Support Service Enrollment Changes

Last updated on 12/16/2021

The Children with Special Health Care Needs Services Program – Family Support Services (CSHCN-FSS) transition to the Provider Enrollment and Manaagement 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 CSHCN-FSS clients services according to existing CSHCN-FSS provider agreements.

To prepare for the new CSHCN-FSS 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
