TAHP Comments on Proposed Rule Amendments Concerning the eHAC Extension

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on proposed rule amendments to 1 Tex. Admin. Code § 351.823, concerning the Texas Health and Human Services e-Health Advisory Committee (eHAC) extension. The Texas Association of Health Plans (TAHP) supports a two-year extension of the Committee.

As the statewide trade association representing health insurers, HMOs, Medicaid managed care, and other health plans that serve over 20 million Texans, TAHP is committed to ensuring that Texas families and employers have access to affordable, comprehensive, and high-quality coverage. We believe eHAC serves an important role in furthering those goals by examining the ways health information technology and exchange systems can deliver cost-effective and efficient telemedicine, telehealth, and home telemonitoring services.
