We Are TXRPC
The Texas Rehab Providers' Council strives to provide various forums for idea exchange and productive discussion about the challenges, opportunities, and innovations of Rehab Technology within Texas.
Enhance the quality, accessibility, and professional provision of enabling technologies to individuals with disabilities through the partnership of industry and consumers.
- To provide a forum wherein the rehab technology industry and its consumers can partner in open discussion and problem solving to enhance the role of rehab technology in the health care delivery system
- To act as a resource for factual information to funding sources, legislative members, state agency staff, and other interested parties relative to the need for quality and professionally provided rehab technology products
- To provide a unified stakeholder voice for the rehab technology industry and its consumers in Texas
The Greater Texas Rehab Providers' Council Inc. (TXRPC) was established to provide an open forum for discussion and to facilitate a unified voice for consumers, equipment providers, and manufacturers of high tech rehab equipment on issues that confront this special segment of the health care market in Texas.
The formation of the TXRPC was a natural evolution from the activities and work of the MESA coalition Medicaid workgroup that was active in working with HHSC senior staff, the Texas Legislative Budget Board, and numerous individual Legislators in averting the proposed across the board reimbursement cuts for Rehab and DME products with the Texas Medicaid Program in 2002 and 2003.
Events in the past have made it clear that it is essential for rehab providers and consumers alike to be more aware and active in education and communication about rehab technologies and for this reason the TXRPC has been established.
"Without a unified voice, Texans with disabilities could face devastating limitations on their access to enabling technology on which they rely for daily independence."
- To repair the tarnished image of professional equipment providers due to fraudulent behaviors of a limited few corrupt providers
- The need for persons with disabilities and their advocates to educate and communicate with funding sources
- The impact of the Implementation of the new HIPAA standardized billing codes
- The impact of the transition to a new claims processing agent for the Texas Medicaid Program
- The Impact on persons with disabilities as a result of the reorganization of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission
