Multiple Medicaid COVID-19 Flexibilities Extended Through January 31, 2022

Last updated on

Note: Texas Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs) must provide all medically necessary, Medicaid-covered services to eligible clients. Administrative procedures such as prior authorization, precertification, 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.

The following Medicaid COVID-19 flexibilities have been extended through January 31, 2022. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is extending these flexibilities through January 31, 2022, because it includes teleservices that are being analyzed in alignment with House Bill 4.

HHSC will provide more information if there are changes.
