Heidi BickhamIndustry News, Medicaid, Press Releases

FFY 2024 Participant List closing  MAY 15, 2024!

Fairbanks sent an email last week regarding the forth quarter certification of the Provider List.

  • The 4th quarter is new this fiscal year. It MUST be certified no later than May 15th 2024. 
  • This 4th Quarter RMTS will be for August 19th – Spetember 30th 2024
  • Remember, the RMTS is POSITION Driven – not person driven. The name can always be updated later.
  • Be sure to add any NEW POSITIONS that have been approved for 2024-2025 school year.


Please remember that the federal fiscal year (FFY) 2024 (October 2023 to September 2024) fourth quarter PL closing date is May 15, 2024.

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 May 15th, you will not be able to make any other changes for the fourth quarter of FFY 2024.  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. The Random Moment Time Study (RMTS) will begin August 19, 2024, and end on Monday, September 30, 2024.

If the current PL is not updated/certified and/or if a district has not completed their annual RMTS contact training requirements by the deadline date(s), the entity will be ineligible to participate in SHARS program for the entire 2024 fiscal year, and ineligible to participate in the Medicaid Administrative Claiming (MAC) program for the quarter.

To verify if your district has met the annual RMTS training requirement, please:
