1200 Purpose of Manual

Revision 20-0; Effective December 18, 2020

 

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Epilepsy Program Policy Manual is a guide for contractors who deliver epilepsy services in Texas. The policy manual has been structured to provide contractor staff with information needed to comply with program legislation and rules.

Federal and state laws related to reporting abuse, operation of health facilities, professional practice, insurance coverage and similar topics also impact epilepsy services. Contractors are required to be aware of and comply with existing laws.
