• WellCare Assignment Error

    WellCare recently encountered a configuration error which has impacted roughly 2200 members and about 120 WellCare primary care physicians in the Houston and Beaumont markets. These members were inadvertently assigned to new PCPs. The error has been corrected, but new member ID cards were sent. These members will be sent letters instructing them to ignore the new ID cards and another card with their original PCP will be sent. PCPs are asked not to turn away any patients without first checking the WellCare portal or contacting WellCare Customer Service to validate the members PCP assignment.


    TMB Enforcing Death Certificate Complaints

    The TMB had previously placed a moratorium on penalties for complaints received against physicians failing to meet the requirements of the electronic death certification process because of difficulties encountered with implementing the new death registry system, TxEVER. As TxEVER’s technical issues are being resolved, the TMB has resumed normal processing of complaints as of May 1. If you encounter technical issues with TxEVER contact Help-TxEVER@dshs.texas.gov or 1-888-963-7111 (Press 1 for English, then 2 for TxEVER Help Desk). Call HCMS as well so we can follow up and ensure the issues get resolved. If technical issues preclude you from meeting the requirements of the death registry system, contact the TMB at www.tmb.state.tx.us/page/contact-us.
