2021 MAC Financial Updates

IMPORTANT FFY2021 UPDATES:  Annual training conducted by HHSC is mandatory for all Primary and Secondary MAC Financial Contacts. The annual training requirements can be completed by attending webinar training.

Consolidated Training Sessions – In an effort to simplify qualification requirements for providers, HHSC has consolidated “Initial” and “Refresher” training sessions into a single training. Training must be attended by anyone who wishes to gain Financial Contact access, regardless of prior training status.

Streamlined Training Schedule – To further simplify the training process for providers, the training calendar has undergone several changes.

  • Six training sessions are scheduled prior to the 1st Quarter 2021 (OD-20) due date, allowing all providers to qualify before the start of the new Federal Fiscal Year reporting period.
  • One training is scheduled for later in the year to allow for new on boarding staff to receive training for the current FFY, and not to have to wait until the new FFY to start filing MAC Financials for their organization.

It is important to understand that “full” access to the MAC Financial online system is contingent upon compliance with all annual training requirements. MAC Financial Contacts who have not completed the required training will have “view-only” access that will not allow the entry, modification or submission of required information on the MAC Financial report/claim. It is the responsibility of each provider entity to ensure their designated MAC Financial Contacts attend MAC Financial Contact Training.

MAC Financial Training sessions for federal fiscal year 2021 are available to register:
