HHSC Adopts New COVID-19 Vaccination Data Reporting Emergency Rules for NF and ALF Providers

Effective Jan. 11, HHSC has adopted new COVID-19 vaccination data reporting emergency rules. The rules require nursing facilities and assisted living facilities to accurately report COVID-19 vaccination data for staff and residents to HHSC in the format established by HHSC within 24 hours of completing a round of vaccinations. The data will allow HHSC to accurately track vaccinations of staff and residents in long-term care facilities in Texas.

HHSC has published Provider Letter 2021-01 (PDF) with instructions on how to report vaccination data information to HHSC using Survey Monkey.
