The 2023 FFY which spans the date range of October 2022 through September 2023. The 2nd quarter contains the date range of January – March 2023. The participant list for this open quarter is set to close on December 15, 2022.
The RMTS Contact must update/certify the participant list prior to this closing date. The participant list can only be accessed by a RMTS Contact who has completed the HHSC mandatory annual training requirements.
If your entity certified a participant list for the previous quarter, that PL information has been carried over to the participant list for the current quarter. The RMTS Contact must ensure that any necessary changes, additions or deletions are entered. Even if there are no changes, the participant list must be updated/certified prior to the closing date using the “no change” option.
Once the participant list closes on December 15th, you will not be able to make any other changes for the first quarter of FFY 2023. It is important to remember that for a position to be included on the MAC claim or SHARS cost report it must first be included on the P participant list.
If the current participant list is not updated/certified, it will cause the entity to become ineligible to participate in SHARS program for the entire 2023 fiscal year, and to be ineligible to participate in MAC program for the quarter.
