INFORMATIONAL ITEMS:
3. Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program Transition June.*
Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes new Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter D, Division 5, concerning Actions in Preparation for Extension of the DSRIP Program. The new division consists of §354.1641, concerning Definitions; §354.1643, concerning Medicaid and Low-income or Uninsured (MLIU) Quantifiable Patient Impact (QPI); §354.1645, concerning Electing to Continue a DSRIP Project in the Waiver Extension Period; §354.1647, concerning Requests for Adjustments to Certain DSRIP Projects; and §354.1649, concerning Certain Requirements for the Planned Transition Year and their Exceptions.

In September 2015, HHSC proposed to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) an extension of the Texas Healthcare Transformation and Quality Improvement Program, a Section 1115 Waiver that expires on September 30, 2016. As part of the extension of the 1115 Waiver, HHSC intends to extend the DSRIP program. DSRIP is a program for hospitals and certain other providers to implement transformative projects to increase access to care and quality of care.

To prepare for expected changes in the structure of DSRIP, HHSC proposed a transition year to coincide with the first demonstration year in the extension period (or sixth demonstration year overall). Performing providers must take certain steps to prepare for the transition year. These proposed new rules describe the steps expected of performing providers.

First, a performing provider may elect to continue, end, or replace its existing projects. Second, a performing provider may request adjustments to certain DSRIP project characteristics. Third, HHSC plans to require the provision of Quantifiable Patient Impact - data by a particular method and will require that performing providers report Medicaid identification numbers as a necessary component to getting a DSRIP payment. HHSC is offering exceptions to certain performing providers.
- Ardas Khalsa, Deputy Director for Transformation Waiver Operations, HHSC Medicaid/CHIP

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULES / ACTION ITEMS:

4. DSRIP Program Transition Year.*

HHSC proposes new Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter D, Division 6, concerning DSRIP Program Transition Year. The new division consists of §354.1661, concerning Definitions; §354.1663, concerning Requirements of Continuing DSRIP Projects; §354.1665, concerning Requirements for Continuing DSRIP Projects; §354.1667, Performance Bonus Pool (PBP) Requirements); §354.1669, Requirements for Combining Certain DSRIP Projects; §354.1671, concerning DSRIP Requirements for Uncompensated Care Hospitals; §354.1673, concerning Remaining DSRIP Funds; and §354.1675, concerning Anchor Requirements. HHSC also proposes to amend Chapter 354, Subchapter D, Division 3, §354.1624, concerning Independent Assessment of DSRIP Projects.
In September 2015, HHSC proposed an extension of the Texas Healthcare Transformation and Quality Improvement Program, a Section 1115 Waiver that expires on September 30, 2016. As part of the extension of the 1115 Waiver, HHSC intends to extend the DSRIP program. DSRIP is a program for hospitals and certain other providers to propose transformative projects that will increase access to care and quality of care.

Changes in the structure of DSRIP in later years of the 1115 Waiver extension are expected. To allow for time to address future changes, HHSC proposed to (CMS a transition year to coincide with the first demonstration year in the extension period (or sixth demonstration year overall). The proposed rules in new Division 6 outline the requirements for that transition year.

In this transition year, HHSC proposes to simplify the structure and administration of the DSRIP program while maintaining the overall level of funding to performing providers (or “performer” as used in the DSRIP rules). To that end, HHSC proposes to focus payments more directly on the impact to patients. Additionally, HHSC hopes to innovate within the DSRIP program by adding a performance bonus pool for the various regional healthcare partnerships (RHPs). This bonus pool will further incentivize members of the several RHPs to collectively strive to address critical regional needs.

HHSC is currently negotiating with CMS on the extension of the DSRIP program and the policies surrounding the transition year. However, the proposed rules mirror the proposal made to CMS regarding the transition year. HHSC will update these rules, as necessary, in accordance with CMS guidance.
HHSC is also proposing an amendment to §354.1624 to specify that compliance monitoring is an ongoing process that will continue in the transition year and to clarify providers’ responsibility to provide any requested documentation to the independent assessor and HHSC. The proposed amendment also clarifies that HHSC can initiate recoupments based on the findings of the independent assessor.

1. Opening comments: Gilbert Handal, M.D., Medical Care Advisory Committee Chair.
2. Comments from the Associate Commissioner for Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Gary Jessee, Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).
3. Approval of February 18, 2016, meeting minutes (Vote Required).
INFORMATIONAL ITEMS:

4. Managed Care Organizations (MCO) Audit Coordination.*

HHSC proposes new Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 353, Subchapter A, §353.6, concerning Audit of Managed Care Organizations, and new Chapter 371, Subchapter B, §371.37, concerning Audit of Managed Care Organizations.
The proposed new rules implement §533.015, Texas Government Code, as amended by Senate Bills 200 and 207, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015. Section 533.015(b) requires the HHSC Executive Commissioner to define the roles in, jurisdiction over, and frequency of audits of managed care organizations (MCOs) participating in Medicaid conducted by various divisions of HHSC, including the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
The proposed new rules require coordination between various divisions of HHSC in conducting MCO audits, as directed by the HHSC Executive Commissioner through specific policy directives; clarify the roles of HHSC and the OIG with respect to audits of MCOs; and require coordination between HHSC and the OIG in conducting such audits.
- Rich Stebbins, Director III, Medicaid (MCD) Finance Management, HHSC

5. Chapter 370 Unborn & Juvenile Facilities.*

HHSC proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 370, concerning CHIP, to align the rules with federal law and current HHSC policy and processes.

Under federal law, a child who is an inmate of a public institution is not eligible for CHIP (§370.307) and that the unborn children of pregnant individuals are to be counted as part of the household composition for purposes of CHIP (§370.807).

- Gina Perez, Interim Director, Policy Strategy, Analysis, and Development Office of Social Services, HHSC

6. Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program Transition June.*
HHSC proposes new TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter D, Division 5, concerning Actions in Preparation for Extension of the DSRIP Program, and new §§354.1641 to 354.1649 within the new division.

In September 2015, HHSC proposed an extension of the Texas Healthcare Transformation and Quality Improvement Program, a Section 1115 Waiver that expires on September 30, 2016. As part of the extension of the 1115 Waiver, HHSC intends to extend the DSRIP program. DSRIP is a program for hospitals and certain other providers to implement transformative projects to increase access to care and quality of care.

To prepare for expected changes in the structure of DSRIP, HHSC proposed a transition year to coincide with the first demonstration year in the extension period (or sixth demonstration year overall). Performing providers must take certain steps to prepare for the transition year. These proposed new rules describe the steps expected of performing providers.

First, a performing provider may elect to continue, end, or replace the provider's existing projects. Second, a performing provider may request adjustments to certain DSRIP project characteristics. Third, HHSC plans to require the provision of Quantifiable Patient Impact data by a particular method and will require that performing providers report Medicaid identification numbers as a necessary component to getting a DSRIP payment. HHSC is offering exceptions to certain performing providers.
- Ardas Khalsa, Medicaid/CHIP Deputy Director for Transformation Waiver Operations, HHSC

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULES / ACTION ITEMS:
7. DSRIP Program Transition Year.*
HHSC proposes new TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter D, new Division 6, concerning DSRIP Program Transition Year, and new §§354.1661, 354.1663, 354.1665, 354.1667, 354.1669, 354.1671, 354.1673, and 354.1675 within the new division. HHSC also proposes to amend Chapter 354, Subchapter D, Division 3, §354.1624, concerning Independent Assessment of DSRIP Projects.
In September 2015, HHSC proposed an extension of the Texas Healthcare Transformation and Quality Improvement Program, a Section 1115 Waiver that expires on September 30, 2016. As part of the extension of the 1115 Waiver, HHSC intends to extend the DSRIP program. DSRIP is a program for hospitals and certain other providers to propose transformative projects that will increase access to care and quality of care.

Changes in the structure of DSRIP in later years of the 1115 Waiver extension are expected. To allow for time to address future changes, HHSC proposed to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) a transition year to coincide with the first demonstration year in the extension period (or sixth demonstration year overall). The proposed rules in new Division 6 outline the requirements for that transition year.

In this transition year, HHSC proposes to simplify the structure and administration of the DSRIP program while maintaining the overall level of funding to performing providers (or “performer” as used in the DSRIP rules). To that end, HHSC proposes to focus payments more directly on the impact to patients. Additionally, HHSC hopes to innovate within the DSRIP program by adding a performance bonus pool for the various regional healthcare partnerships (RHPs). This bonus pool will further incentivize members of the several RHPs to collectively strive to address critical regional needs.

HHSC is currently negotiating with CMS on the extension of the DSRIP program and the policies surrounding the transition year. However, the proposed rules mirror the proposal made to CMS regarding the transition year. HHSC will update these rules, as necessary, in accordance with CMS guidance.

HHSC is also proposing an amendment to §354.1624 to specify that compliance monitoring is an ongoing process that will continue in the transition year and to clarify providers’ responsibility to provide any requested documentation to the independent assessor and HHSC. The proposed amendment also clarifies that HHSC can initiate recoupments based on the findings of the independent assessor.
Ardas Khalsa, Medicaid/CHIP Deputy Director for Transformation Waiver Operations, HHSC
8. Chapter 358 Achieving a Better Life Experience Program (ABLE) & School-Based Accounts.*
HHSC proposes new TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 358, §358.357, concerning ABLE Program; §358.358, concerning School-Based Savings Program; §358.389, concerning ABLE Program; and §358.390, concerning School-Based Savings Program. The new rules exclude ABLE accounts and School-Based Savings accounts from being counted as income and resources when determining eligibility for Medicaid Eligibility for Elderly and People with Disabilities (MEPD) programs.

The proposed rules implement provisions of Texas Education Code §54.9065, adopted by Senate Bill (SB) 1664, and Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611, adopted by House Bill (HB) 3987, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, for MEPD. The proposed new §§358.357 and 358.389 exclude funds used to establish an ABLE account, funds held in an ABLE account, interest earned on an ABLE account, and payments for expenses for the designated beneficiary from resources and income calculations in determining financial eligibility for MEPD programs, as specified Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611. The proposed new §§358.358 and 358.390 exclude school-based savings accounts and interest earned on the accounts from resources and income calculations in determining eligibility for MEPD, as specified by Texas Education Code §54.9065.

- Gina Perez, Interim Director, Policy Strategy, Analysis, and Development, Office of Social Services, HHSC
9. Chapter 359 ABLE & School-Based Accounts.*
HHSC proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 359, §359.103, concerning the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary Program and §359.109, concerning the Qualified Disabled and Working Individual Program. Together, the rules as amended exclude ABLE accounts and School-Based Savings accounts from being counted as income and resources when determining eligibility for Medicare Savings Programs.
The proposed rules implement provisions of Texas Education Code §54.9065, adopted by SB 1664, and Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611, adopted by HB 3987, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, for Medicare Savings Programs. The proposed amendments to §359.103 exclude funds used to establish an ABLE account, funds held in an ABLE account, interest earned on an ABLE account, and payments for expenses for the designated beneficiary from resources and income calculations in determining financial eligibility for the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) program as specified by Texas Education Code §54.9065. HHSC will also exclude school-based savings accounts and interest earned on the accounts from resources and income calculations in determining eligibility for QMB as specified by Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611.
The proposed amendments to §359.109 exclude funds used to establish an ABLE account, funds held in an ABLE account, interest earned on an ABLE account, and payments for expenses for the designated beneficiary from resources and income calculations in determining financial eligibility for Qualified Disabled and Working Individual (QDWI) programs as specified by SB 1664. HHSC will also exclude school-based savings accounts and interest earned on the accounts from resources and income calculations in determining eligibility for QDWI as specified by Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611.
- Gina Perez, Interim Director, Policy Strategy, Analysis, and Development, Office of Social Services, HHSC
10. Chapter 360 ABLE & School-Based Accounts.*
HHSC proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 360, §360.113, concerning Resources.

The proposed rules implement provisions of Texas Education Code §54.9065, adopted by SB 1664, and Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611, adopted by HB 3987, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, for the Medicaid Buy-In (MBI) program. The proposed amendments to §360.113 exclude funds used to establish an ABLE account and funds held in an ABLE account from resources calculations in determining financial eligibility for the MBI program, as specified by Texas Education Code §54.9065. HHSC will also exclude school-based savings accounts from resources calculations in determining eligibility for MBI, as specified by Texas Human Resource Code §32.02611.
- Gina Perez, Interim Director, Policy Strategy, Analysis, and Development, Office of Social Services, HHSC
11. Chapter 361 ABLE & School-Based Accounts.*
HHSC proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 361, §361.111, concerning Income.

The proposed rules implement provisions of Texas Education Code §54.9065, adopted by SB 1664, and Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611, adopted by HB 3987, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, for the Medicaid Buy-In for Children (MBIC) program. The proposed amendments to §361.111 exclude interest earned on an ABLE account and payments for expenses for the designated beneficiary from income calculations in determining financial eligibility for the MBIC program, as specified by Texas Education Code §54.9065. HHSC will also exclude interest earned on school-based savings accounts from income calculations in determining eligibility for MBIC, as specified by Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611.
- Gina Perez, Interim Director, Policy Strategy, Analysis, and Development, Office of Social Services, HHSC
12. Chapter 358 Same-Sex Marriage.*
HHSC proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 358, Subchapter C, Division 6, §358.431, concerning Definitions.

The proposed rules implement the Supreme Court Decision Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. 135 (2015), issued on June 26, 2015, for Medicaid for the Elderly and People with Disabilities (MEPD). The proposed amendments to §358.431 specify that marriages include legally married same-sex couples in determining eligibility for MEPD.
- Gina Perez, Interim Director, Policy Strategy, Analysis, and Development, Office of Social Services, HHSC
13. Chapter 366 Affordable Care Act (ACA), School-Based Accounts.*
HHSC proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 366, §366.319, concerning Child Support and Medical Support; §366.703 and §366.707, concerning Medicaid for Parents and Caretaker Relatives; §366.821 and §366.847, concerning Medically Needy Program; and §366.1107, concerning Determination of Household Composition.

The proposed rules implement provisions of the ACA and Texas Human Resources Code §32.02611, adopted by HB 3987, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015. The proposed amendments will ensure the needs of the unborn are counted correctly in an individual's household composition (§366.1107), include a parent or caretaker's spouse in eligibility determinations (§366.707), exclude school-based savings accounts as countable resources when determining eligibility for the Medically Needy Program (§366.847), remove the deprivation requirement (§366.703), and remove the requirement for a pregnant woman to provide the name and last known address of the father of her unborn child (§§366.319 and 366.821).
- Gina Perez, Interim Director, Policy Strategy, Analysis, and Development, Office of Social Services, HHSC
14. Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Physician Signature.*
HHSC proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 3, §354.1039, concerning Home Health Services Benefits and Limitations.
Currently, §354.1039 requires that a prior authorization request for repairs of DME or appliances must include a statement or medical information from the attending physician substantiating that the medical appliance or equipment continues to serve a specific medical purpose and an itemized estimated cost list of the repairs.
The requirement for a statement from the attending physician is administratively burdensome on DME providers requesting prior authorization for the repair of a DME or appliance. Therefore, HHSC proposes to remove this requirement.
- Laurie VanHoose, Director, MCD Medical Benefits, HHSC
15. Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).*
HHSC proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter E, Rule §355.501, concerning Reimbursement Methodology for Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). The purpose of the proposed amendments is two-fold. First, the proposed amendments align the rule with the shift from a fee-for-service payment system to a managed care payment system. The proposed amendments will thus adjust the underlying methodology and the data sources for determining PACE reimbursement. Second, the proposed amendments implement HB 3823, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, which outlines new requirements for reimbursement methodology. On the whole, the legislation links PACE reimbursement rates to those of the STAR+PLUS Medicaid program, modifies the methods for collecting PACE and STAR+PLUS Medicaid program data, and requires a comparison of PACE costs and care outcomes to STAR+PLUS Medicaid costs and outcomes.
- William Warburton, Actuary, Financial Services, HHSC
16. STAR Kids, STAR+PLUS, STAR Health, and Home and Community-Based Services.*
HHSC proposes new TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 353, Subchapter M, concerning Home and Community-Based Services in Managed Care and Subchapter N concerning STAR Kids. HHSC also proposes amendments to TAC Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 353, Subchapter A, concerning General Provisions; Subchapter G, concerning STAR+PLUS; and Subchapter H, concerning STAR Health.
The proposed amendments to Subchapters A, G, and H address rules §353.2, concerning Definitions; §353.603, concerning Member Participation; §353.701, concerning General Provisions; and §353.702, concerning Member Participation.
HHSC proposes new Subchapter M, concerning Home and Community-Based Services in managed care, including new §§353.901, 353.903, and 353.905. HHSC also proposes new Subchapter N, concerning STAR Kids, including new §§353.1201 to 353.1209. Proposed Subchapter M describes the eligibility and assessment requirements for the STAR+PLUS Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) program offered to qualified members in the STAR+PLUS managed care program and the Medically Dependent Children Program.
Proposed Subchapter N aligns with legislative direction to provide Medicaid benefits to individuals under the age of 21 who have disabilities using a mandatory, capitated STAR Kids managed care program. Texas Government Code §533.00253, enacted in 2013, directs HHSC to establish a mandatory, capitated STAR Kids managed care program tailored to provide Medicaid benefits to individuals under the age of 21 who have disabilities. HHSC intends for the STAR Kids program to improve coordination of care, access to care, health outcomes, and quality of care with an operational start date of November 1, 2016. Proposed Subchapter M contains the rules required to implement this program.
Proposed Subchapters G and H make changes resulting from the STAR Kids implementation. These primarily include changes to the list of client populations who are mandatory, voluntary, or excluded for these programs.
Other proposed amendments to STAR+PLUS eligibility and program rules implement Texas Government Code §531.0931, adopted by SB169, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, regarding military members and their dependents who are on interest or waiting lists for services.

- Michelle Erwin, Director, MCD Program Policy, HHSC

17. Nursing Facility Administrator and Nurse Aide Requirements for Military Service Members, Military Veterans, and Military Spouses.*

HHSC, on behalf of the Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS), proposes new sections and amendments to certain sections in TAC Title 40, Chapter 18, Nursing Facility Administrators; and Chapter 94, Nurse Aides.

The proposal implements SBs 807 and 1307, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, which amended Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 55, Licensing of Military Service Members, Military Veterans, and Military Spouses. The proposal addresses several areas that relate to licensure of military service members, military veterans, and military spouses by describing processes for these persons to request fee waivers, to request additional time to complete renewal requirements, to request credit for internship requirements, and to request renewal of an expired license or nurse aide registry listing. The proposed rules add definitions related to the military provisions and delete provisions related to military members in existing rule because they are included in the new sections.

- Anne Trejo, NFA Licensing Manager, DADS

18. Day Habilitation Locations.*

HHSC, on behalf of DADS, proposes new §9.230 in TAC Title 40, Chapter 9, Subchapter E, concerning Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability or Related Conditions (ICF/IID) Program--Contracting, Provider Service Requirements; and, in 40 TAC Chapter 49, concerning Contracting for Community Services, amendments to §§49.102 and 49.205; and new §49.313.

The proposal implements a recommendation from the Sunset Advisory Commission to DADS in the commission’s July 2015 Staff Report with Final Results, concerning “day habilitation facilities” in the Home and Community-Based Services Program, Texas Home Living Program, Deaf-Blind with Multiple Disabilities Program, Community Living Assistance and Support Services Program, and Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability or Related Conditions Program. The proposal implements SB 1999, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015 which amended the Texas Human Resources Code, Chapter 103, to change “adult day care” to “day activity and health services.” The proposal also implements SB 202, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, which repealed Texas Health and Safety Code Chapter 781 concerning personal emergency response systems by deleting the requirement for a contractor that provides emergency response services under Title XX ERS to have a license as a personal emergency response system provider issued by the Department of State Health Services or a license as an alarm systems company issued by the Texas Private Security Board.

- Sheryl Loera, HCS/TxHmL Policy Lead, DADS

19. Repeal of various outdated rules.*

HHSC, on behalf of DADS, proposes to repeal TAC Title 40, Chapter 6, concerning ICF/ID Programs--Contracting, Subchapter H, concerning the Dental Program; Chapter 9, concerning Intellectual Disability Services--Medicaid State Operating Responsibilities, Subchapter G, concerning Medicaid Fair Hearings; and Chapter 39, concerning Community Alzheimer’s Resources and Education (CARE) Program.
