Reimbursement Rate Updates for Ambulatory Surgical Center and Surgery/Assistant Surgery Procedure Codes Effective January 1, 2023

Last updated on 3/3/2023

Note: Texas Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs) must provide all medically necessary, Medicaid-covered services to Medicaid members who are enrolled in their MCO. Administrative procedures, such as prior authorization, precertification, referrals, and claims and encounter data filing, may differ from traditional Medicaid (fee-for-service) and from MCO to MCO. Providers should contact the member’s specific MCO for details.

Effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2023, the reimbursement rate updates for the 2023 Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) and Surgery/Assistant Surgery procedure codes will be implemented for Texas Medicaid.

The Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP) will reprocess any affected claims that are identified. Providers are not required to appeal the claims unless the claims are denied for additional reasons after reprocessing is completed.
