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.

Regarding system configuration updates, TCHP will apply updates and reprocess impacted claims as soon as possible. However, due to volume, please allow up to sixty (60) business days to complete.

Call to action: Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) would like to inform providers of new billing requirements for the rendering provider that will go into effect June 21, 2022. This update in accordance with the guidance from the Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual (TMPPM) section 6.1.2, Claims Filing Instructions. In order for claims to process accordingly providers may need to update their billing practices. Our contracted clearinghouse, Change Healthcare (CHC), will reject any claims that do not contain proper Billing Provider Taxonomy Numbers and/or Billing Providers NPI’s, or rendering provider taxonomy.
