Texas HHSC has adopted one new rule and several amendments to rules in the Texas Administrative Code, implementing legislation from HB 2025 passed in 2017. The rules were effective on October 28, 2018, but HHSC is giving Alf’s, DAHS facilities and NF’s until May 1, 2019 to develop and implement the policies related to Alzheimer’s training. Enforcement on the other rule changes will be enforced now. The provider letter announcing this can be found here.
The Texas Secretary of State has updated the rules and changes on its website. They can be found here.
