Waiver Backgroud


The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is now proceeding with implementation of a five-year Section 1115 Medicaid Waiver, Texas Healthcare Transformation and Quality Improvement Program: Medicaid 1115 Waiver, which was approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in December of 2011. Through this Waiver, we have an unparalleled opportunity to re-shape health care in our communities and improve access to quality, affordable care. As the public health care system for our region, JPS Health Network will serve as the anchor facility.

Planning and implementation of Waiver activities will be achieved through the development of Regional Health Plans. In the coming weeks, as the Tarrant County region is formalized, additional information will be posted on this web page, including an overall project timeline and information regarding stakeholder engagement.

In order to develop the most effective Regional Healthcare Partnership proposal to deliver better care at a lower cost to our patients and communities, JPS will issue a regional health plan assessment Request for Proposal (RFP) and planning process. This process is designed to ensure transparency in the development of a Regional Healthcare Partnership proposal that will represent the best interests of our region, while delivering value to patients, our state and federal government.

Throughout this process, communications, updates, and planning materials will be posted to this site for your reference. If you wish to be added to the Regional Healthcare Partnership stakeholder mailing list, please send an email to info@rhp10txwaiver.com.
