Applying for Reinstatement
Reinstatement of excluded entities and individuals is not automatic. Those wishing to again participate in the Title V (Maternal & Child Health Services), Title XIX (Medicaid) and the Title XX (Block Grants for Social Services) and other HHS programs must request reinstatement and receive a certified letter from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (Commission), Office of Inspector General granting reinstatement.
Obtaining a provider number from a Medicare contractor, a Medicaid contractor, or a Federal health care program does not reinstate eligibility to participate in these programs. There are no provisions for early or retroactive reinstatement.
Upon written request to the Commission at the address listed below, the Commission will provide a written notification indicating the final decision pertaining to the reinstatement request. When requesting reinstatement include documentation and or proof that the Commission may review to reasonably determine that the violation(s) that led to your exclusion will not reoccur. Provide a copy of the complete Reinstatement Order from the appropriate Board and or a copy of the Reinstatement letter from HHS Office of Inspector General (Medicare) program.
If reinstatement is denied the excluded party is eligible to reapply after all stipulations required by the Commission are met.
