I am currently on Colorado Medicaid, pregnant, moving to Texas…

Medicaid-QuestionQ) I am currently on Colorado Medicaid. I am 13 weeks pregnant and my husband and I are moving to Texas. I understand the transfer process. I was just curious if there was a timeline of residency before I could apply for Tx Medicaid. I am trying to get everything figured out as soon as possible so I can get in with a dr here in Abilene before the pregnancy gets any further along to where a doctor won’t accept me as a patient. Thank you

A) It would appear that from the notes on Texas Medicaid Hand book that once you have been denied coverage (at the end of your coverage month) from your loosing state you are eligible for coverage in Texas on the “date the applicant became a Texas resident.”

“If the losing state … then …
Step 1 denied the recipient’s Medicaid the last day of the month the recipient moved from the state or later, go to Step 2.
denied the recipient’s Medicaid the day the recipient moved from the state, assign a MED = date the applicant became a Texas resident.” http://www.dads.state.tx.us/handbooks/TexasWorks/A/800/800.htm

  1. I was wondering how your moving process went? My husband and I are moving with our 4 kids from California to Texas and I will need to apply for food and cash aid until we can find stable jobs..
