Revision 23-2; Effective Sept. 15, 2023

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Primary Health Care Program Policy Manual is a guide for grantees who deliver primary health care services in Texas. The policy manual is structured to provide grantee 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 primary health care services. Grantees are required to be aware of, and comply with, existing laws.
