To be reimbursed for services rendered to Medicaid Members, Provider must be enrolled in Texas Medicaid.  If an Out of Network Provider does not have a TPI number, the provider will not be eligible for reimbursement for services to a member participating in the STAR Medicaid Program.  An Out of Network Provider must notify the El Paso Health Contracting and Credentialing Department of the TPI assignment through a formal written notification which may be the Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP) approval letter.

Out of Network Providers are subject to non-participating provider authorization and reimbursement guidelines.
