Licensure and Certification
State licensure is based on the Texas Administrative Code (TAC). Federal certification is based on the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and requirements established through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Providers must demonstrate not only compliance with requirements, but also:
- their ability to remain in compliance continually; and
- that corrective actions and follow-up methods are implemented to ensure that the deficient practice or violation does not recur.
ICF/IID licensing standards can be found at 40 TAC Chapter 90:
Information concerning certification requirements for ICF/IID programs and the survey process can be found in the State Operations Manual (SOM), Appendix J:
