Clarification from HHSC on LTSS Provider Enrollment

THCA has received questions from member providers inquiring if the LTSS Provider Enrollment, due no later than February 1, 2019, applies to nursing facilities.  We reached out to HHSC for clarification on this question and we received the following confirmation from Deanna Naranjo, Manager – Provider Resolutions and Administrative Appeals, with HHSC:

“We haven’t been enrolling nursing facilities, they are considered LTC (long term care) only. They shouldn’t have to worry about this process.”

If you need further clarification, feel free to reach out to Dorothy Crawford
