Program providers and financial management services agencies (FMSAs) that want to use an EVV proprietary system will have two opportunities to obtain HHSC approval of their system in fiscal year 2021. Refer to the article titled EVV Proprietary System Updates for more information about the Readiness Review sessions.
Program providers and FMSAs can choose to use an HHSC-approved EVV proprietary system to comply with EVV requirements instead of an EVV vendor system from the state vendor pool.
An EVV proprietary system:
- Is purchased or developed by the program provider or FMSA.
- Is used to exchange EVV information with the EVV Aggregator.
- Must comply with the requirements of Texas Government Code §531.024172.
- Must comply with all HHSC EVV standards, rules, and reporting requirements.

The EVV Proprietary System Request Form must be completed to indicate the program provider or FMSA has made the decision to operate an EVV proprietary system in Texas. The program provider or FMSA must complete, sign, and submit it to TMHP at EVV_PSO@tmhp.com.
