The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) will conduct a public hearing to receive comments on the proposed amendments to §354.1001 under Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 1, concerning Claim Information Requirements, and to §354.1121 under Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 10, concerning Definitions.
The proposed amendments require the name and national provider identifier of a supervising provider on a claim when a supervised provider makes an order or referral for services. As stated in Section two of House Bill 1720, 82nd Legislature, Regular Session, 2011, this situation typically occurs when an advanced practice registered nurse or physician assistant orders a service. Additionally, the term national provider identifier is added to the definitions.
