Medical Care Advisory Committee

August 13, 2020

1:30 p.m.

Location: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this meeting will be conducted online virtually using Microsoft Teams only. There is not a physical location for this meeting.

To join the meeting, go to: https://bit.ly/MCAC_Aug2020. Attendees who would like to provide public comment should see the Public Comment section below.
1. Welcome, roll call, introductions, and opening remarks
2. Approval of February 13, 2020 meeting minutes (vote required)
3. Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program activities
ACTION ITEMS:
4. Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDD) habilitative specialized services
- Anne McGonigle, Program Services Manager, HHSC IDD Services and Anthony Jalomo, IDD Director, HHSC Business Operations
The purpose of the proposal is to describe the requirements applicable to a service provider agency providing preadmission screening and resident review IDD habilitative specialized services (IHSS) to Medicaid-eligible nursing facility residents aged 21 years and older found through PASRR to need such services.
5. Long term care regulatory certification principle re-write
- Kristin Priddy, Senior Policy Specialist, HHSC Long-term Care Regulatory Services
HHSC proposes to draft new rules describing regulatory certification principles for the Home and Community-based Services (HCS) Medicaid waiver program providers. The new rules will describe certification principles regarding service delivery, individual rights, requirements related to abuse, neglect and exploitation, staff member and service provider requirements, and quality assurance.
6. HCS/Texas Home Living (TxHmL) respite and day habilitation reimbursement
- Samuel West, Manager, HHSC Research, Development and Methodology
The proposed amendments ensure compliance with the 21st Century Cures Act, which added Section 1903(l) to the Social Security Act to require all states to implement the use of electronic visit verification (EVV) for all Medicaid personal care services requiring an in-home visit by a service provider. Currently, HCS and TxHmL providers bill day habilitation (DH) and respite using service codes that do not distinguish between in-home and out-of-home service provision. The proposed amendments establish separate service codes for in-home and out-of-home care to allow HHSC to compare service claims for in-home DH and respite with the information in the EVV aggregator regarding the provision of those services.

7. EVV
- Jordan Nichols, Director, HHSC EVV
This proposal is to consolidate the EVV rules into one location, implement federal and state requirements for the Texas EVV system, and remove unnecessary or duplicative rules from the Texas Administrative Code. Texas EVV began as a state-mandated system and is in the process of changing to comply with current state law and newly enacted federal law. An EVV system electronically verifies information relating to the delivery of services, such as the type of service provided, names of the member and provider, and dates and times of services provided. The proposed new rules list the services subject to the use of EVV and to whom they apply.
8. Claims payment deadlines exceptions
- Caryl Chambliss, Director, HHSC Operations Management Claims Administration
Under Texas Administrative Code Title 1 §354.1003, most Medicaid providers must submit claims to the claims administrator within 95 days of the date of service or they will be denied for late filing. Additionally, providers must adhere to claims filing and appeal deadlines, and all claims must be finalized within 24 months of the date of service. On occasion, circumstances beyond the providers' control result in claims being finalized outside of this 24-month requirement. The purpose of this amendment is to add an exception to the rule that allows HHSC to consider such situations as exceptions to the provider 24-month time limit for filing claims if the provider shows good cause and to the extent permitted by state and federal law. Exceptions for this reason are currently made on a case-by-case basis, and adding this additional exception will bring the rule into alignment with current practice.
9. HHSC 2020 advisory committee amendments and repeals
- Kymberly Oltrogge, Attorney, HHSC Legal Services Division
The purpose of the proposal is to amend certain rules to extend advisory committees that are set to be abolished, revise certain committees' membership and tasks to incorporate duties related to persons on the autism spectrum, align the rules with statute and statutory interpretations, clarify terms, and repeal a rule for an advisory committee that no longer functions.
10. Public comment.
11. Proposed next meeting: November 12, 2020, at 9:00 a.m.
12. Adjourn
