UPDATE: Draft Medicaid Medical and Dental Policies

HHSC ensures that policies are medically appropriate, patient-centered, transparent and based on the best available evidence. The agency’s medical and dental policies outline the types of procedures and treatments for which HHSC will pay for specific conditions.

Medical practitioners, program clients and the public can give HHSC feedback regarding new medical and dental policies or changes to existing policies.

Please review the proposed policy or proposed changes to an existing policy, and then email HHSC your feedback to MCDMedicalBenefitsPolicyComment@hhsc.state.tx.us.

The policies on this site are only drafts, and not considered final. While under review, the policies are open to comment. Please reference specific line numbers when providing feedback.
