Political subdivisions may submit to TDI billing rate sets for emergency service providers that are controlled or regulated by the political subdivision. TDI will publish these rates on the Texas Open Data portal.
This page has the following sections:
Senate Bill 2476 provides that political subdivisions may submit a rate set to TDI related to emergency medical services and that TDI shall publish the rates on its website.
TDI recently proposed amendments to the independent dispute resolution (IDR) rules in Title 28, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 21, Subchapters OO and PP. To implement SB 2476, this proposal:
- Clarifies the payment standards for EMS providers; and
- Explains how and when political subdivisions may submit EMS rates to TDI for publication on the publicly accessible database.
To be announced

Will I need to set up an account to submit emergency medical services data for a political subdivision?
Yes, an account must first be set up before data can be reported.
Can more than one person submit data for a political subdivision?
Yes, a reference number will be provided when an account is first set up and data is entered. This number must be used by others reporting on behalf of the political subdivision.
What does “Resident rate” mean when the reporting forms asks “Is the nonresident rate the same?” in the “Unlisted codes” section?
If your political subdivision charges the same rates for patients who live within the political subdivision and those who do not, the answer is “Yes”, the nonresident rate is the same. If there are different rates depending on where the patient lives, the answer is “No”.
