    For Providers

    Attention Providers!

    Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) would like to share important information on checks sent by Change Healthcare. TCHP has been notified that due to a process failure at Change Healthcare, a number of invalid checks have been erroneously issued. These paper checks were issued to a number of our providers for amounts previously paid via check or electronic funds transfer (EFT) dating back to February 20, 2024. These checks are not valid and should not be deposited. Please review the Provider Alert for more information.

    • The Vendor Drug Program (VDP) will make changes to the Texas Medicaid drug formulary. This is in effect as of January 26, 2024 on select medication(s) moving from “preferred” to “non-preferred” status and vice-versa.
