Revision Notice 17-1; Effective October 11, 2017


This revision amends §97.2, Definitions, and §97.23, Change of Ownership.


The adopted rules revise requirements related to change of ownership of a license holder for a home and community support services agency (HCSSA). Under the adopted rules, a license holder is not required to apply for a new license if the ownership structure of the license holder changes but the license holder is the same legal entity, as evidenced by having the same federal taxpayer identification number. Changes in ownership structure must be reported to Texas Health and Human Services Commission under other existing rules. The adopted rules add definitions concerning changes in ownership.
