Attention: All Providers

Effective Date: August 28, 2021

Providers should monitor the Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) Provider Portal regularly for alerts and updates associated to the COVID-19 event.  TCHP reserves the right to update and/or change this information without prior notice due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 event.

Call to action: Texas providers rendering services to evacuees from Louisiana due to Hurricane Ida may complete the Hurricane Emergency Expedited Application with Louisiana Medicaid to receive reimbursement for services rendered to Louisiana Medicaid clients for the fee-for-service program.

How this impacts providers: When providing care to a Louisiana managed care enrollee, providers will need to contact the clients’ MCO in order to be reimbursed for services delivered.
