For Texas-based service providers, regular travel reimbursement rules apply for services provided in-state as well as for services provided out-of-state.

Out-of-state providers will be reimbursed for in-state travel only based on regular travel reimbursement rules and in accordance with the following stipulations.

  • Air fare for out-of-state providers will not be reimbursed when entering or leaving the state.
  • If the out-of-state provider arrives and/or departs by air, rental car reimbursement will be calculated based on the most cost-effective airport location.
  • If the out-of-state provider arrives and/or departs by private vehicle, mileage will be calculated by the odometer reading from/to the state line.
  • If the out-of-state provider arrives and/or departs by rental car, reimbursement of rental car charges will be prorated based on the number of days the provider is actually providing services within the state.
  • Bus and train service will be reimbursed from/to the first/last depot station within the state.
