Speech Language Pathologists under scrutiny by Texas Health and Human Services Commission Office of Inspector General


Recently a large number of Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) in Texas have received notices from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission Office of Inspector General advising that a vendor hold (i.e., payment suspension) has been placed on their Medicaid payments from TMHP due to a "credible allegation of fraud." The effect of the vendor hold is to stop all Medicaid reimbursements to the Provider until such time as HHSC-OIG is convinced that fraud has not and is not occurring. HHSC-OIG grants providers due process rights to appeal and lift the suspension.
