Call to action: Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) would like to make providers aware of a training opportunity.
Texas Medicaid implemented a medical benefit for the CoCM on June 1, 2022, as directed by Senate Bill 672, 87th Legislature, Regular Session, 2021. Prior to the implementation of the benefit, the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) conducted two trainings on CoCM services for MCOs in May of 2022.
To ensure adherence to the core principles and the specific functional requirements of the model, HHSC has developed an online training for providers of CoCM services that will be accessible via the Texas Medicaid and Healthcare Partnership (TMHP) website .

The CBT includes six modules that may be completed by providers in any order.
