Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) announced that it is undertaking an update to its provider enrollment system. HHSC has selected a vendor to design and implement a new provider management and enrollment system for the state’s Medicaid program. The project is expected to take four years to complete.
The new provider enrollment solution will modernize, streamline, and advance the state’s existing Medicaid provider management platform in accordance with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) framework. When complete, the solution will enable Texas to operate, manage, control, and configure provider management, including functionality for online enrollment or re-enrollment through one centralized portal.
The current Texas Medicaid provider enrollment system is plagued with problems and forces providers to often revert to paper applications to get properly enrolled with the Medicaid system.
