Texas Health and Human Services Commission

Public Notice - Texas State Plan for Medical Assistance Amendments

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) announces its intent to submit an amendment to the Texas State Plan for Medical Assistance under Title XIX of the Social Security Act. The amendment is proposed to be effective October 1, 2017.

The proposed amendment will revise the definition of a rural hospital for Medicaid reimbursement purposes. The current definition of a rural hospital is a hospital in a county with 60,000 or fewer persons based on the 2010 decennial census, a hospital designated by Medicare as a Critical Access Hospital (CAH), a Sole Community Hospital (SCH), or a Rural Referral Center (RRC). The proposed amendment changes this to define a rural hospital as (1) a hospital located in a county with 60,000 or fewer persons according to the 2010 U.S. Census; or (2) a hospital designated by Medicare as a Critical Access Hospital (CAH), Sole Community Hospital (SCH), or a Rural Referral Center (RRC) that is not located in a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget; or (3) a hospital that (a) has 100 or fewer beds, (b) is designated by Medicare as a CAH, SCH, or RRC, and (c) is located in an MSA.

In addition, the proposed amendment updates the funding factor used for the Safety-Net Add-on for state fiscal years 2018 and 2019.

The proposed amendment is estimated to result in an aggregate cost savings of $103,142,877 for federal fiscal year (FFY) 2018, consisting of $58,518,485 in federal funds and $44,624,392 in state general revenue. For FFY 2019, the estimated aggregate cost savings is $101,518,536, consisting of $57,411,589 in federal funds and $44,106,947 in state general revenue.

Copy of Proposed Amendment. Interested parties may obtain a copy of the proposed amendment and/or additional information about the amendment by contacting Doneshia Ates, State Plan 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 Medicaid_Chip_SPA_Inquiries@hhsc.state.tx.us. Copies of the proposed amendment will be available for review at the local county offices of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (which were formerly the local offices of the Department of Aging and Disability Services).

Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board

Notice of Intent to Engage in Negotiated Rulemaking - Data Request Reevaluation

(Texas Institutions of Higher Education)

Texas Education Code (TEC) §51.406 directs the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board ("THECB" or "Board") to reevaluate its rules and policies to ensure the need for the data requests it imposes on institutions of higher education and to consult with the institutions to identify any unnecessary data request(s) that are appropriate for removal from Board Rules. The THECB intends to engage in negotiated rulemaking in accordance with the provisions of TEC §61.0331 which requires the THECB to employ the negotiated rulemaking process when adopting a policy, procedure, or rule relating to the reevaluation of data requests.

In identifying persons likely affected by the proposed rules and policies, the Convener of Negotiated Rulemaking sent a memo via email to all chancellors and presidents at Texas institutions of higher education soliciting their interest and willingness to participate in the negotiated rulemaking process, or to nominate a representative from their system/institution.

From this effort, 29 individuals responded (out of approximately 191 affected entities) and expressed an interest to participate or nominated someone from their system/institution to participate on the negotiated rulemaking committee for data request reevaluation. The positions held by the nominees include vice presidents, directors, and deans. This indicates a probable willingness and authority of the affected interests to negotiate in good faith and a reasonable probability that a negotiated rulemaking process can result in a unanimous or, if the committee so chooses, a suitable general consensus on the proposed rule and policies.

The following is a list of the stakeholders who are significantly affected by this rule and policy and will be represented on the negotiated rulemaking committee for data request reevaluation:

1. Public Community Colleges;

2. Public Health-Related Institutions;

3. Public Universities;

4. Public Technical Colleges;

5. Public State Colleges;

6. Independent Colleges and Universities; and

7. Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

The THECB proposes to appoint the following 24 individuals to the negotiating rulemaking committee for data request reevaluation to represent affected parties and the agency:

Public Community Colleges

In the event the Texas Lottery Retailer cannot verify the claim, the Texas Lottery Retailer shall provide the claimant with a claim form and instruct the claimant on how to file a claim with the Texas Lottery.

In the event the claim is not validated, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

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

A. if a dispute occurs, or it appears likely that a dispute may occur, regarding the prize;

B. if there is any question regarding the identity of the claimant;

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. If a person under the age of 18 years is entitled to a cash prize under $600 from the "SUPER HIT SUPER TICKET™" Scratch Ticket Game, the Texas Lottery shall deliver to an adult member of the minor's family or the minor's guardian a check or warrant in the amount of the prize payable to the order of the minor.

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.

2.8 Disclaimer. The number of prizes in a game is approximate based on the number of Scratch Tickets ordered.

When a signature is placed on the back of the Scratch Ticket in the space designated, the player whose signature appears in that area shall be the owner of the Scratch Ticket and shall be entitled to any prize attributable thereto. Notwithstanding any name or names submitted on a claim form, the Executive Director shall make payment to the player whose signature appears on the back of the Scratch Ticket in the space designated. If more than one name appears on the back of the Scratch Ticket, the Executive Director will require that one of those players whose name appears thereon be designated by such players to receive payment.
