8511 Requests Beyond General Release

August 2020

If a representative of a news organization contacts CCR staff with questions beyond what is afforded in accordance with 8100 Information for General Release, CCR staff refer the representative to the director of regional operations for their respective program.

The CCR director of regional operations or designee will work with the HHSC chief press officer, or that person's designee, to release information to the media that goes beyond what is allowed in 8100 Information for General Release. Before obtaining information that goes beyond general release, the requestor completes a request for open records when necessary.
