HHSC Extends NFA 60-Day Grace Period for Certain Renewals

April 27, 2022

HHSC is currently implementing a new credentialing system for nursing facility administrators in the Texas Unified Licensure Information Portal.

Due to limited functionality in TULIP, HHSC is providing a grace period of 60 days. All nursing facility administrator licenses active on Feb. 11, 2022 will be considered active until 60-days following full implementation of the new system. HHSC will send out a notice once the system is fully implemented. This will allow all NFAs to submit renewals and associated documents through the new credentialing system. 

Refer to Provider Letter 2022-20 as documentation of the grace period.
