Revision 20-1; Effective May 8, 2020

 

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Primary Health Care Services Program Policy Manual is a guide for contractors who deliver primary health care services in Texas. The policy manual is structured to provide contractor staff with information needed to comply with program legislation and rules.

Federal and state laws related to reporting abuse, operation of health facilities, professional practice, insurance coverage and similar topics also impact primary health care services. Contractors are required to be aware of, and comply with, existing laws.

Primary Health Care Services program contractors must also follow the DSHS Standards for Public Health Clinic Services.
