14 / D.0 Implementation

15 Your Texas Medicaid Benefits Card and System Noel Villarreal, Project Director Medicaid and CHIP Division 15

16 Project Status On June 29, 2011, Your Texas Benefits Medicaid Card became operational (previously known as the Medicaid ID card system). Release 1 implementation supports electronic eligibility verification and includes the following: Card production and distribution. Provider portal eligibility verification. Help Desk – Medicaid Eligibility and Health Information Services (MEHIS). 16

17 Project Status Release 2.1, scheduled to release in January 2011, will include an initial basic version of the client portal that will enable clients to print a copy of their Medicaid ID cards. Subsequent 2.x releases are scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2012 and will include the more robust applications associated with: Electronic health history. E-prescribing. On-line explanation of benefits verification. 17

19 5010 Impacts The N5010 standard applies to X12 transactions from a MEHIS perspective. The MEHIS system has two X12 transaction sets which both revolve around the X12 270/271 Eligibility Inquiry/Response transactions: Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP) –MEHIS submits interactive X Eligibility Inquiries to TMHP to verify client eligibility. –This inquiry transaction already conforms with the 5010 standard. –The 271 Eligibility Response received from TMHP also conforms with 5010 as implemented. –No anticipated impacts to this interface. SureScripts –MEHIS submits interactive X Eligibility Inquiries to SureScripts in support of the ePrescribing tool. –MEHIS is implementing the latest version of the e-prescribing system that already supports the 5010 standard with SureScripts. –No anticipated impacts after implementation. 19

20 5010 Impacts Area of possible impact: If there are new requirements regarding the minimum set of client and provider data that is captured and submitted within the Eligibility Inquiry transaction. Not likely as this is specific to program policies or business rules, and not necessarily requirements of the 5010 standard. There are no other interfaces in MEHIS that use X12; therefore, no impact with the current implementation. Other transactions supported by MEHIS are batch files, HL-7, and NCPDP SCRIPT 8. These should not be impacted by the 5010 standard as none of these are candidates for the X12 specifications. 20
