Latitude & Longitude (NAD 83) 27.93645, -97.11492

Project Description: The applicant proposes to consolidate the projects from two expired Corps Permits (Permit Numbers 5470 and 17951) for dredging and the construction and installation of structures located at the site. Permit 5470 authorized the dredging of an approximate 1,207-foot long by 60-foot wide channel (approximately 5.35 acres) extending to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) to a depth of -14 feet mean lower low water (MLLW). It also authorized the construction and installation of a 40-foot by 35-foot bulkhead wall and mooring-pile clusters. Permit 17951 authorized the dredging of an approximate 2.27-acre sailboat basin to -6 feet MLLW, construction of a boat ramp, and bulkhead to provide launching and mooring facilities for pleasure boats. Both of these projects were completed within their respective permits timeframes and the bulkheads and basins with appurtenances remain in existence. The applicant proposes to modify the consolidated project by mechanically dredging a total of 218,900 cubic yards (CY) of accumulated sediment and new material from 10.2 total acres consisting of: 1. an approximate 2.58-acre footprint expansion located southwest of, and abutting, the prior permitted dredge footprints to a depth of -14 feet MLLW, removing approximately 64,000 CY of material; 2. maintenance and new-work dredging within the 2.27-acre sailboat basin from -6 feet MLLW to -14 feet MLLW (45,300 CY of material); and 3. maintenance dredging of accumulated sediment (109,000 CY) within the 5.35-acre channel to restore previously authorized depths. In addition, the applicant proposes to install seven (7) 48-inch-diameter mooring dolphins along the southern perimeter of the proposed dredge footprint for securing vessels. The purpose of the proposed request is to provide the area necessary for the fleeting and maneuverability of barges for the loading and unloading of bulk products at the existing dock infrastructure. The dredged material would be placed onsite within an upland confined dredged material placement area for decanting. The proposed project would require the conversion of 1.37 acres of estuarine wetlands to open water and permanent removal of 0.15 acre of seagrass

Texas Health and Human Services Commission

Public Notice: 1115 Waiver Amendment for Autism Services effective February 1, 2022

The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is submitting a request to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to amend the Texas Healthcare Transformation Quality Improvement Program (THTQIP) waiver under section 1115 of the Social Security Act. The proposed effective date for this amendment is February 1, 2022.

In response to Texas General Appropriations Act Rider 28, Article II, Senate Bill 1 for the 2022-23 Biennium, which appropriated funds for applied behavioral analysis (ABA) services for autism, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is clarifying the coverage of certain early and periodic screening, diagnostic, and treatment (EPSDT) services for children and youth with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in its State Plan. HHSC is seeking approval to make non-risk payments to Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) for ABA services.

ABA services will be covered as an EPSDT service to the extent required by 42 U.S.C. 1396a(a)(43).

Providing ABA services will allow HHSC to expand the array of services available for the treatment of individuals with a diagnosis of ASD. ABA services will be provided using an interdisciplinary model of care, which will include participation of the individual and their parent/caregiver and will ensure the coordination of care for the individual. This is consistent with the 1115 demonstration waiver goal of supporting the development and maintenance of a coordinated care delivery system.

Proposed Changes

ABA services for Medicaid-enrolled children/youth with a diagnosis of ASD will include: behavior identification assessment; individual and group treatment by protocol; individual and group treatment with protocol modification; family treatment guidance; and the related service of treatment team conferences. HHSC, at the recommendation of its actuaries, proposes to implement the ABA services under a non-risk payment arrangement with the MCOs until sufficient and credible data are available to be able to set actuarially sound capitation rates in accordance with 42 CFR 438.4. This will allow HHSC additional time to capture experience data which can be used to inform future efforts to revise capitation payments for inclusion of the autism services.

Appendix 1 to Attachment 3.1-A and B, Other Practitioners' Services, in the Medicaid State Plan will be amended to add the coverage described above and to identify the provider types eligible to deliver the services. Attachment 4.19-B, section 32 EPSDT will also be amended to update the fee schedule and rate methodologies to add reimbursement for the covered services as described above.

Financial Analysis

Budget Neutrality of the waiver will be amended to reflect the provision of ABA to the extent required by 42 U.S.C. 1396a(a)(43) (relating to EPSDT services). The impact to budget neutrality is not significant as the amendment is included under both with waiver and without waiver expenditures.

HHSC is requesting an amendment to waive 42 U.S.C. 1396a(a)(30)(A) and 42 U.S.C 1396b(m) of the Social Security Act and related regulations to allow certain non-risk payments to MCOs. Upon collection of sufficient historical experience for ABA utilization, the services will be considered for incorporation into capitated rates.

Evaluation Design

The CMS-approved 1115 evaluation design and the 1115 draft evaluation design submitted to CMS on July 14, 2021, do not include any evaluation questions, hypotheses, or measures directly related to services for children and youth with a diagnosis of ASD. The majority of measures are not impacted by this waiver amendment because they focus on study populations not receiving these services, outcomes unrelated to ABA services, and/or study periods which end prior to the service change. It is possible this waiver amendment may indirectly influence a limited number of measures in either 1115 evaluation design, however, impacts are expected to be minimal due to the tangential relationship between this amendment and evaluation measures.

HHSC is not planning to add evaluation questions or hypotheses related to ABA services to the either 1115 evaluation design because this amendment does not reflect a substantial service delivery change and therefore does not support the objectives of the evaluation. Upon request, HHSC may provide the external evaluator with administrative data necessary to identify individuals who receive ABA services, and if possible, identify influences associated with the clarification of ABA services where necessary.

Enrollment, Cost Sharing and Service Delivery

There will be no cost sharing for Medicaid-enrolled children/youth and their families and the amendment does not affect program eligibility; therefore, no significant impact to enrollment is anticipated.

An individual may obtain a free copy of the proposed waiver amendment, ask questions, obtain additional information, or submit comments by September 20, 2021, regarding this amendment by contacting Dawn Roland by U.S. mail, telephone, or email. The addresses are as follows:

Public Notice: Texas State Plan for Medical Assistance Amendment Effective September 1, 2021

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 purpose of the amendment is to adjust the payment rate methodology for the pediatric care facility special reimbursement class of nursing facilities. The proposed methodology will be based upon the unadjusted federal per diem rate for rural Medicare skilled nursing facilities for the most recent federal fiscal year. As part of this amendment, language about the performance-based add-on payment methodology for nursing facilities will be repealed because it is no longer applicable, and this language will be replaced with the pediatric care facility reimbursement methodology. The amendment is proposed in order to implement the requirements of the 2022-23 General Appropriations Act, Senate Bill (S.B.) 1, 87th Legislature, Regular Session, 2021 (Article II, HHSC, Rider 40). The proposed amendment is effective September 1, 2021.

The proposed amendment is estimated to result in an annual aggregate expenditure of $154,408 for the remainder of federal fiscal year (FFY) 2021, consisting of $105,013 in federal funds and $49,395 in state general revenue. For FFY 2022, the estimated annual aggregate expenditure is $1,861,396, consisting of $1,160,580 in federal funds and $700,816 in state general revenue. For FFY 2023, the estimated annual aggregate expenditure is $1,961,000, consisting of $1,192,288 in federal funds and $768,712 in state general revenue.

Rate Hearing. A rate hearing was held on July 12, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. in Austin, Texas. Information about the proposed rate change and the hearing can be found in the July 2, 2021 issue of the Texas Register on page 4045 at http://www.sos.state.tx.us/texreg/index.shtml.

Copy of Proposed Amendment. To obtain a copy of the proposed amendment, interested parties may contact Holly Freed, State Plan Team Lead, by mail at the Health and Human Services Commission, P.O. Box 13247, Mail Code H-600, Austin, TX 78711; by telephone at (512) 428-1932; by facsimile at (512) 730-7472; or by email at Medicaid_Chip_SPA_Inquiries@hhsc.state.tx.us. At this time, HHSC is encouraging communications be sent via email. Copies of the proposed amendment will be available for review at the local county offices of HHSC, (which were formerly the local offices of the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services).
