Avoid Being Dis-enrolled from Medicaid by Meeting the June 17 Deadline

Want to make sure you remain enrolled in Texas Medicaid on Sept. 25, 2016? Submit your Medicaid re-enrollment application on or before June 17, 2016.

If your application is submitted after June 17, Texas Medicaid can't guarantee that it will be processed and revalidated by the Sept. 24 deadline, which means you will be dis-enrolled from Texas Medicaid.

More information is available at DADS Texas Medicaid LTSS Provider Enrollment/Re-enrollment webpage.

Why Do I Need to Re-Enroll?

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires state Medicaid agencies to revalidate the enrollment of all state Medicaid program providers. The original deadline of March 24, 2016, was extended by CMS to allow states additional time to process provider applications. For Texas Medicaid, this means all providers who have not met all PPACA revalidation requirements must do so through re-enrollment by Sept. 24, 2016.

CMS Extends Provider Re-enrollment Deadline

CMS has extended the March 24, 2016, deadline for Medicaid provider re-enrollment to Sept. 25, 2016.

Though this extension gives states additional time to ensure providers comply with Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requirements, Texas Medicaid encourages all providers who have not yet submitted a re-enrollment application to begin this process immediately to avoid potential payment disruptions. More information about re-enrollment can be found on the DADS website.

Additional information will be announced in the coming weeks to assist providers who are working on the re-enrollment process.

Questions can be emailed to DADS Provider Enrollment Mailbox.
