Public Notice: Change made to the Medicaid Managed Care Reimbursement for Federally Qualified Health Centers

In the February 24, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 826), the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) published notice of its intent to submit transmittal number 17-0002 to the Texas State Plan for Medical Assistance under Title XIX of the Social Security Act.

The purpose of the amendment is to delete the requirement that a Medicaid managed care organization (MCO) reimburse a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) its full per-visit rate so that an MCO may negotiate a rate with an FQHC that is less than the FQHC's full per-visit rate. The State will make a wrap payment to the MCO equal to the difference between the full per-visit rate and the negotiated rate.

The effective date has changed from March 1, 2017, to September 1, 2017.

For questions concerning this revised notice, you may contact Doneshia Ates, State Plan Policy Advisor, by mail at the Health and Human Services Commission, P.O. Box 13247, Mail Code H-600, Austin, Texas 78711; by telephone at (512) 428-1963; by facsimile at (512) 730-7472; or by email at Doneshia.Ates@hhsc.state.tx.us. Copies of the proposal will also be made available for public review at the local offices of the Health and Human Services.

Correction of Error

The Department of State Health Services (department), proposed amendments to 25 TAC §§421.1, 421.4, 421.6 - 421.8, 421.9, 421.61, 421.64, and 421.66 - 421.68, 421.71, and 421.78; the repeal of 25 TAC §421.5 and §421.10, and new 25 TAC §§421.45 - 421.47, 421.69, 421.79 and 421.81 in the March 31, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 1703).

The proposed preamble contained the following errors:

The preamble states that the amendment to 25 TAC §421.7(b) and §421.66(b) reduces the quarterly deadline dates by "two months" when it should state "one month" for corrections at the time of certification for the following quarters: for Quarter 1 - "October" is deleted and "September" is inserted; for Quarter 2 - "January" is deleted and "December" is inserted; for Quarter 3 - "April" is deleted and "March" is inserted; and for Quarter 4 - "July" is deleted and "June" is inserted.

The amendment updates the title of 25 TAC §421.8 to Hospital Discharge Data Creation by deleting the word "Release" and adding the word "Creation." The language in 25 TAC §421.8(d) - (l) is deleted and moved to new 25 TAC §421.45, Data Requests and Releases. The language is modified to address the inpatient, outpatient and emergency department data set requests for "public use data" instead of "public used data" or research data files.

The email address in the comments section is being corrected. Comments on the proposal may be submitted to Bruce Burns, Department of State Health Services, Mail Code 1898, P.O. Box 149347, Austin, Texas 78714-9347, or by email to "THCICHelp@dshs.texas.gov" instead of "Bruce.Burns@dshs.state.tx.us."

Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation

Enforcement Plan - Midwives Penalty Matrix

The Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation (Commission) provides this public notice that at their regularly scheduled meeting held March 1, 2017, the Commission adopted the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation's (Department) revised enforcement plan which was established in compliance with Texas Occupations Code, §51.302(c).

The enforcement plan gives all license holders notice of the specific ranges of penalties and license sanctions that apply to specific alleged violations of the statutes and rules enforced by the Department. The enforcement plan also presents the criteria that are considered by the Department's Enforcement staff in determining the amount of a proposed administrative penalty or the magnitude of a proposed sanction. The enforcement plan is revised to include the penalty matrix for the Midwives program.

The Texas Legislature enacted Senate Bill 202 (S.B. 202), 84th Legislature, Regular Session (2015), which transferred regulatory authority of 13 programs, to include the Midwives program from the Texas Department of State Health Services to the Commission and Department. The Midwives penalty matrix provides for a single range of penalties to eliminate confusion and allow the industry to fully understand the penalties assessed. The matrix separates standard of care violations from the others to allow for an expert witness, when needed, to assist the Department in understanding the violation. This penalty matrix may differ slightly from others as the agency focuses on aligning strategic plan goals with agency resources.

The Midwives Advisory Board recommended approval of the revised matrix at their meeting held January 25, 2017. The penalty matrix was presented to the Commission on March 1, 2017, and was adopted as recommended. The Commission also requested the Midwives Advisory Board meet to discuss an issue raised during the adoption of the penalty matrix.

A copy of the revised enforcement plan is posted on the Department's website and may be downloaded at www.tdlr.texas.gov. You may also contact the Enforcement Division at (512) 539-5600 or by e-mail at enforcement@tdlr.texas.gov to obtain a copy of the revised plan.

When paying a prize of $600 or more, the Texas Lottery shall file the appropriate income reporting form with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and shall withhold federal income tax at a rate set by the IRS if required. In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

Box 16600, Austin, Texas 78761-6600. The Texas Lottery is not responsible for Scratch Tickets lost in the mail. In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

D. Prior to payment by the Texas Lottery of any prize, the Texas Lottery shall deduct:

1. A sufficient amount from the winnings of a prize winner who has been finally determined to be:

a. delinquent in the payment of a tax or other money to a state agency and that delinquency is reported to the Comptroller under Government Code §403.055;

b. in default on a loan made under Chapter 52, Education Code; or

c. in default on a loan guaranteed under Chapter 57, Education Code; and

C. if there is any question regarding the validity of the Scratch Ticket presented for payment; or

D. if the claim is subject to any deduction from the payment otherwise due, as described in Section 2.3.D of these Game Procedures. No liability for interest for any delay shall accrue to the benefit of the claimant pending payment of the claim.

2.5 Payment of Prizes to Persons Under 18.

Any rights to a prize that is not claimed within that period, and in the manner specified in these Game Procedures and on the back of each Scratch Ticket, shall be forfeited.

Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board

Request for Proposals for Fiscal Years 2018-2019 Water Supply Enhancement Program Brush Control Projects

The Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board is requesting proposals for water supply enhancement projects seeking funding in FY2018-2019 to conduct brush control under the Water Supply Enhancement Program. Proposed projects should focus on watersheds with a demonstrated water conservation need and where brush control has been shown, using a computer model, to be a feasible strategy to enhance surface and/or ground water supplies. This request for proposals was issued March 27, 2017. Proposals must be received by 5:00 p.m. CDT, Thursday, June 1, 2017, to be considered for funding.

The purpose of the Water Supply Enhancement Program is to increase available surface and ground water supplies through the targeted control of water-depleting brush in areas in need of water conservation.

A competitive proposal review process will be used so that the most appropriate and effective projects are selected for funding. In January 2017, the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board adopted a revised State Water Supply Enhancement Plan which serves as the State's comprehensive strategy for managing brush in all areas of the state where brush is contributing to a substantial water conservation problem. The State Water Supply Enhancement Plan describes the program purpose and goals, the competitive grant process and proposal ranking criteria, how the agency will allocate funding, and priority watersheds across the state for water supply enhancement and brush control.

Project proposals must relate to a water conservation need, based on information in the 2017 State Water Plan as adopted by the Texas Water Development Board. Project proposals will be evaluated giving priority to projects that balance the most critical water conservation need of municipal water user groups with the highest projected water yield from brush control. Evaluation criteria for proposed projects focus on municipal water supplies and those populations relying on the affected water supply.

Water Supply Enhancement Program funds will only be allocated to projects that have a completed feasibility study that includes a watershed-specific computer-modeled water yield component developed by a person with expertise as described in Agriculture Code §203.053(b). For a watershed to be considered eligible for cost-share funds, the feasibility study must demonstrate increases in post-treatment water yield as compared to the pre-treatment conditions. Published feasibility studies, which have been accepted by the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board as approved project watersheds, can be found on the agency website.

Each soil and water conservation district involved in the program is limited to a total of two subbasins as either active projects and/or new proposed projects. A maximum of $600,000 over the project period may be requested for an individual project. A two-year project period should be planned. Allocation amounts will be awarded based on the amount of cost-share funds that can be obligated to landowners over the project period. Any letters of support for the proposed project from collaborating entities must be received by the proposal submission deadline. A maximum of only one subbasin from a feasibility study may be listed on a single application.

The proposal submission packet includes the application for proposed water supply enhancement projects, a set of instructions that provides explanations of questions on the application and resources for answering those questions, and a set of guidelines that details project eligibility requirements and provides additional information critical for successful applications.

Proposals may be submitted either electronically (preferred) or as hard copies. The application is provided on the agency website as a fillable PDF form. Regardless of delivery method, proposals must be received by 5:00 p.m. CDT on the proposal submission deadline to be considered for funding. Submit proposals electronically to Johnny Oswald at joswald@tsswcb.texas.gov. Hard copy submissions should be mailed to: Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board; Water Supply Enhancement Program Office; 622 South Oakes Street, Suite H-2; San Angelo, Texas 76903.

For more information about the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board's efforts to enhance public water supplies through the targeted control of water-depleting brush, please contact Johnny Oswald at (325) 481-0335 or joswald@tsswcb.texas.gov. A complete copy of the FY2018-2019 request for water supply enhancement proposals and proposal submission packet is available at http://www.tsswcb.texas.gov/brushcontrol#rfp.
