PERFORMING PROVIDER DSRIP PROJECT PLAN SUBMISSION

Our RHP must be submitted to HHSC by September 1st. In order to have enough time to compile the full RHP plan and get it to HHSC by this date, we are asking that each performing provider submit their project plans to the anchor by August 3rd . However, we encourage you to submit them as soon as you have them ready. We will begin soliciting feedback from the State as they come in.
