Texana Center will re-open on Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
For Texana Patients needing Medication Refills:
In the event of a natural or manmade disaster, the Texas Pharmacy Act allows a pharmacist to dispense up to a 30-day supply of a prescription drug as an emergency refill when the prescriber (Texana) cannot be reached. The only exception to this is if the medication is a Schedule II controlled substance.
If you need a medication refill and can safely get to an open pharmacy, take your medication bottle with the prescription label so the pharmacy can get the information they need.

A Message from Texana Center IDD Authority Services:
If you are a Home and Community-based Services and/or Texas Home Living provider that has been impacted by severe weather, you should contact Will Medina at firstname.lastname@example.org. This contact should be made to report evacuations and also, the return of evacuated individuals to their homes.
Additionally, Texana Center IDD Authority Services is contacting waiver providers to offer support and to gather information about provider needs. If you are a representative of a Nursing Facility that has been impacted by severe weather, please contact your local DADS Regulatory Services Regional Office (RO). The state has temporarily waived some nursing facility admission processes. Subsequently, Texana Center is not receiving and not responding to alerts to complete PASRR Evaluations for newly admitted individuals.
