The Provider Finance Department (PFD) Local Funds Monitoring (LFM) team monitors the non-federal share funds of Medicaid payments that are provided by local governmental entities. The non-federal share funds are received by HHSC via an intergovernmental transfer (IGT) or through a certified public expenditure (CPE) process. HHSC, as the state Medicaid agency, is responsible for ensuring that all funds received from local governmental entities (LGEs) are permissible sources of non-federal share.
In accordance with Texas Health and Human Services (HHSC) rules Title 1 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 355, Subchapter L, Local Funds Monitoring, LFM monitors the source of LGE funds from jurisdictions that transfer public funds via IGT to support Medicaid payments programs for certain directed and supplemental payment programs.
