**NEW** Texas Medicaid Policy- THIRD PARTY
LIABILTY (TLP) for SHARS INTERIM CLAIMS **NEW**
Enrollment in SHARS is optional for districts and parents. Participation does not preclude the district's responsibility to provide a free and appropriate public education to all students with disabilities.
Beginning on October 1, 2017, a new policy was instituted. After Medicaid reimurses districts for SHARS services, the state may seek recovery claims from a student's private insurance. Districts are expected to share this information with parents and ensure informed consent for SHARS services. Information regarding TPL can be found on the Texas Medicaid Healthcare partnership (TMHP) website:
