Following discussions between HHSC and CNSI regarding the contract, HHSC and CNSI agreed to terminate their contract by mutual agreement, ending the vendor’s involvement in the PMES modernization project.

HHSC remains committed to PMES goals. The agency will continue to streamline and simplify the Texas Medicaid provider application. There will be a phased in approach to implement enhancements to the provider enrollment and screening processes.

Enhancements include:

  • Adding pharmacy, long-term care, and long-term services and supports provider types
  • Improving enrollment processing error rates and processing times
  • Reducing dependency on the Texas Provider Identification number

Stakeholders can expect more updates as the project progresses.
