2013 Outpatient Reimbursement Notice
TMHP will implement outpatient reimbursement changes required by Rider 51 of the 2014-2015 General Appropriations Act (Article II, Health and Human Services Commission S.B. 1, 83rd Legislature, Regular Session) in December 2013. The changes will be effective for claims with a beginning date of service on or after September 1, 2013. TMHP will reprocess all previously paid hospital outpatient claims with a beginning date of service on or after September 1, 2013 after implementation of the modifications to the claims processing system.
Upon implementation of the changes to the Texas Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS), TMHP will reprocess all previously paid hospital outpatient claims with a beginning date of service of September 1, 2013. This reprocessing will likely result in recoupments of a portion of the funds paid for these services since the changes required by Rider 51 included reductions in certain outpatient reimbursements. The reimbursement rules can be viewed at TAC Rule §355.8061.
Imaging fee updates were implemented and effective September 1, 2013.
