MAC ISD Training Information

Training Information

Training Requirements:

To participate in Medicaid Administrative Claiming (MAC) attendance of the following training is mandatory:
MAC Financial Training; and Random Moment Time Study (RMTS) training.

Training is conducted by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).

Provider entities must attend required training each federal fiscal year (FFY). FFY is defined as October 1 through September 30.

Failure to meet annual training requirements will impact the provider's ability to draw federal funding for MAC eligible services.

It is the responsibility of each provider to ensure one or more of their designated Contacts attend training. HHSC strongly recommends that each provider entity require at least two Contacts attend the required training to ensure compliance should employee turnover occur.

Access to the necessary online MAC financial and RMTS systems will be limited to VIEW-ONLY until such time that mandatory training requirements are met.

Annual training conducted by HHSC is mandatory for all Primary and Secondary MAC Financial Contacts. The annual training requirements can be completed by attending webinar training.

FFY2021 Updates –

Consolidated Trainings -  In an effort to simplify qualification requirements for providers, HHSC has consolidated “Initial” and “Refresher” trainings into a single training. Training must be attended by anyone who wishes to gain Financial Contact access, regardless of prior training status.

Streamlined Training Schedule - To further simplify the training process for providers, the training calendar has undergone several changes. 

  • Six trainings are scheduled prior to the 1st Quarter 2021 (OD20)  due date, allowing all providers to qualify before the start of the new Federal Fiscal Year reporting period.
  • One training is scheduled for later in the year to allow for new onboarding staff to receive training for the current FFY, and not to have to wait until the new FFY to start filing MAC Financials for their organization. 

It is important to understand that "full" access to the MAC Financial online system is contingent upon compliance with all annual training requirements. MAC Financial Contacts who have not completed the required training will have "view-only" access that will not allow the entry, modification or submission of required information on the MAC Financial report/claim. It is the responsibility of each provider entity to ensure their designated MAC Financial Contacts attend MAC Financial Contact Training.

Cost:

Training is sponsored by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and is presented at no charge to the provider.

Training Sessions:

The training presented via Webinar does require registration. Webinar is an interactive online training. Once you have registered, you will receive a website line to access the presentation and a conference call number to call in and participate in the training session.
