(Editor’s Note: Section 1 of House Bill No. 2913 of the 75th Legislative session amended §531.021 of the Government Code, which designates the Texas Health and Human Services Commission [HHSC] as the agency responsible for administration of the Medicaid program. On September 1, 1997, HHSC also became responsible for adopting reasonable rules and standards to govern the setting of Medicaid rates, fees, and charges. Prior to this date, these functions primarily were performed by three agencies- the Texas Department of Health [TDH], the Texas Department of Human Services [TDHS], and the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation [TDMHMR].
