Proof of access to secondary, hospital and specialized care. Proof of downloading recommendation agreements is not available on site. FQHCs can e-mail this information to the NHSC Liaison at the TX Primary Care Office (TPCO). Upon review, the information and documents will be forwarded to the BHW Regional Operations Division (DRO), which will be added as an approved website. The BHW Regional Operations Department (DRO) conducts on-site visits in coordination with your site and your country`s primary procurement office. We assess the understanding and implementation of all the requirements we have set out in the agreement on the NHSC website (PDF – 358 KB) and the Site Reference Guide (PDF – 878 KB). However, your website must remain in an HPSA. It must continue to meet the NHSC eligibility requirements and qualification factors throughout the admission period. Note: If you are unsure of the type of site or have questions about the ineligibility of your site, use this card to search for DRO contact in your country and send an email to the DRO (Division of Regional Operations) contact. Website administrators who may be eligible for NHSC automatic authorization should contact us directly to add new websites to the BHW customer service site. In this case, your site administrator must submit an NHSC Comprehensive Behavioral Health Services checklist (PDF – 397 KB). DRO employees check these materials ahead of the on-site visit.
