The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) will implement a new online Provider Management and Enrollment System (PMES), and the agency needs feedback from Medicaid physicians on how well the system works and how to make it better. To provide input, take HHSC's online survey.
PMES will allow physicians participating in Medicaid and other state-funded programs to submit an enrollment or reenrollment application through one centralized portal. TMA has strongly advocated creation of such a portal in addition to relief from other Medicaid administrative road blocks. For more information, read "Message Received" in the January issue of Texas Medicine.
Once physicians submit the application via PMES, it will be routed to Texas Medicaid and Healthcare Partnership, managed care credentialing organizations, and other Health and Human Services agencies to complete program-specific enrollment.
