The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (“HHSC”) is required to collect information regarding COVID-19-related federal funds. HHSC must report this information publicly. Starting in 2024, associations can report the required information on behalf of their members.
The Texas Hospital Association (“THA”) is willing to submit this required information to HHSC, on behalf THA member hospitals which have no funds to report during the relevant reporting period. THA can and will only report on behalf of those THA member hospitals with no relevant funds to report.

This link will direct you to a page for you to provide THA with the information necessary for THA to submit these zero-fund reports, as necessary, and pursuant to the terms and conditions below.
PLEASE READ THESE IMPORTANT TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
By providing your information, you are designating THA as your institution’s “authorized representative” pursuant to 1 TAC §355.7201 for semi-annual reports required by the 2024-25 General Appropriations Act, House Bill 1, 88th Legislature, Regular Session, 2023 (Article II, HHSC, Rider 150). You attest that your facility or system is an active THA member in good standing, during any period where THA may submit relevant information to HHSC on your behalf.

L. No. 116-260), and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (Pub. L. No. 117-2)
THA will make no determination as to what information your facility or system should report.
