How the 86th Texas Legislature Can Help
Pass Legislation to Enact the STAR Safety Net
An Ambulance Provider Self-Assessment Will Maximize Matching Federal Funds
A self-assessment on our state’s ground ambulance providers will allow Texas to receive the maximum amount of matching federal funding for Medicaid ground ambulance transports. This will provide critical funding for ground ambulance providers to improve response time and coverage across Texas. This program can be implemented at no cost to the state and no additional cost to ambulance customers. Self-assessment funds will be collected from ground ambulance companies by the Texas Health and Human Services commission in coordination with a non-profit corporation. This will allow the Texas Health and Human Services to seek maximum matching federal funds for the state of Texas.
