Texas Medicaid HMO Expansion Begins Sept. 1

On Sept. 1, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) will begin Phase I of its Medicaid HMO expansion, converting the Medicaid Primary Care Case Management model to the Medicaid HMO model in the 28 counties contiguous to the current Medicaid HMO service delivery areas of Bexar, El Paso, Harris, Lubbock, Nueces, and Travis counties. As part of the conversion, the state also will create a new service delivery area – Jefferson -- consisting of 11 counties in Southeast Texas.
