Citizenship and
Immigration Status
You only have to give the
citizenship or immigration
status of people who want
benefits.
If you are not a U.S citizen
or a legal immigrant, the
only benefits you might be
able to get are emergency
Medicaid services.
Getting Medicaid long-term
care services could affect
your immigration status and
your chances of getting a
Permanent Resident Card
(green card).
You might want to talk to an
agency that helps
immigrants with legal
questions before you apply.
You only need to give the Social
Security numbers (SSNs) for people
who want benefits.
Giving or applying for an SSN
is voluntary; however, anyone who
doesn’t apply for an SSN or doesn’t
give an SSN can’t get benefits.
If you don’t have an SSN, we can help
you apply for one if you are a U.S.
citizen or a legal immigrant.
You must be a U.S. citizen or a legal
immigrant to get an SSN.
You can get benefits for your children if
they have an SSN and you don’t.
We will not give SSNs to the Bureau of
Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
We will use SSNs to check the amount
of money you get (income), if you can
get benefits, and the amount of benefits
you can get.
(42 CFR §435.910)

Facts HHSC Has About Me
HHSC uses facts about people applying for
benefits to decide: (1) who can get benefits,
and (2) the amount of benefits. HHSC checks
facts with the federal Income and Eligibility
Verification System. If any facts don’t match,
HHSC will check other sources (banks,
employers, etc.). If anyone applying for
benefits has an immigration registration
number, HHSC must check with the U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration
Services’ (USCIS) system. HHSC will not
give anyone’s facts to USCIS.
In most cases, I can see and get facts HHSC
has about me. This includes facts I give
HHSC and facts HHSC gets from other
sources (medical records, employment
records, etc.). I might have to pay to get a
copy of these facts. I can ask HHSC to fix
anything that is wrong. I do not have to pay to
fix a mistake. To ask for a copy or to fix a
mistake, I can call 2-1-1 or my local HHSC
benefits office.
Medicaid health care providers (doctors,
drug stores, hospitals, etc.) might give out
facts about me to HHSC. This will allow
the providers to be paid by Medicaid.
Giving Out Facts About Me
If I choose not to tell the truth, I might:
If I Give False Information
• Be charged with a crime.
• Have to repay benefits.
The same is true if I let someone else use
my medical card or Medicaid ID.
If I get Medicaid, HHSC will keep medical
service payments I can get from other
sources, such as:
Medical Payments
I must tell HHSC about these sources. If I
don’t, I am breaking the law.
• My health insurance.
• Money I got because of injuries.
HHSC will only keep the amount of
medical support and service payments
allowed by law. I will work with HHSC to
get these funds.
I agree to let HHSC know, within 10 days,
about any changes to my case. This
includes changes in facts I give on this
form such as money I get, things I own or
are paying for, where I live, or insurance I
have (including health insurance
premiums).
Reporting Changes
Statement of
Understanding
Section M
Read this
section
before
signing.
HHSC can share facts about me
• When needed for me to get state health
care benefits.
• With phone and utility companies. They
will find out if my bill amount can be
lowered. HHSC will give them my name,
address, and phone number.
Asset Verification Consent
I know that my signature below and/or on the
application lets the HHSC get facts about
things I own (including money) from banks,
credit unions, or other financial institutions so
HHSC can decide if I can get Medicaid.
HHSC can keep checking these facts until:
• HHSC denies my application for Medicaid;
or
• I can't get Medicaid anymore; or
• I tell HHSC in writing that I do not want
HHSC to check these facts any more.
If I do not let HHSC get facts about me from
financial institutions, or I tell HHSC I do not
want it to check these facts anymore, I know
that HHSC may deny or stop my Medicaid.
HHSC will keep my facts private if they
were collected:
• By HHSC staff or contracted provider
staff.
• To find out if I can get state benefits.

Medicaid Estate Recovery Program:
If you get certain Medicaid long-term services, the state of Texas has the right to ask for money
back from your estate after you die. In some cases, the state might not ask for anything back.
The state will never ask for more money back than what it paid for your services.
Notice:
Printed name of witness
If you have a problem or complaint you should first discuss it with the Texas Medicaid Estate
Recovery Program. Many times they can explain specific policies or correct the problem
immediately. If your problem or complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction, you can contact
the HHS Office of the Ombudsman by calling 1-877-787-8999 or by making an online
submission at https://hhs.texas.gov/ombudsman.
The state can ask for money back from your estate only if:
1. you applied for and received certain Medicaid services on or after March 1, 2005; and
2. you were age 55 or older when you got the services.
To learn more about Texas Medicaid Estate Recovery Program, including frequently asked
questions, please visit https://hhs.texas.gov/MERP. You also may email questions to
