The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services issued a provider letter that replaces PL #05-25, effective June 1, 2006.
The revised letter reflects changes in presurvey requirements, pursuant to 40 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 97 amendment. From the letter:
The administrator, alternate administrator, supervising nurse (if applicable), and alternate supervising nurse (if applicable) of a HCSSA applying for licensure must attend a presurvey conference per 40 TAC Section 97.13(a)â€¦This training will cover the HCSSA licensing standards (40 TAC Chapter 97, Subchapters C, D, E, F, and G) as well as other general licensure information. Other interested persons may attend a HCSSA pre-survey conference for informational purposes but must also enroll online.
