Please remember that the federal fiscal year (FFY) 2023 (October 2022 to September 2023) 2nd quarter PL closing date is December 15, 2022.
The RMTS Contact must update/certify the PL prior to this closing date. The PL can only be accessed by a RMTS Contact who has completed the HHSC mandatory annual training requirements.
If your entity certified a PL for the previous quarter, that PL information has been carried over to the PL 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 PL must be updated/certified prior to the closing date using the “no change” option.
Once the PL 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 the School Health and Related Services (SHARS) cost report it must first be included on the PL.
If the current PL 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 the Medicaid Administrative Claiming (MAC) program for the quarter.
If you have any questions, please contact the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Time Study Unit at Timestudy@hhs.texas.gov or at (737) 867-7794.
