Region 10 Health Partnership (RHP)

   for the Texas 1115 Medicaid Waiver




Waiver Background


The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is now proceeding with implementation of the renewal of the 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. Additional information will be posted on this web page, including an overall measure timeline and information regarding stakeholder engagement.
