A) I understand that you are moving to Texas and you are trying to apply for Medicaid. I am happy to help you with this process.
The first step is to contact the Medicaid office in Texas. They will be able to tell you what documentation you need to provide in order to enroll in Medicaid.
In addition to your Arkansas Medicaid number, you will also need to provide the following documentation:
- Proof of your residency in Texas, such as a driver’s license or utility bill
- Proof of your income and assets
Once you have gathered all of the required documentation, you can submit it to the Medicaid office. They will review your application and determine if you are eligible for Medicaid.
If you are approved for Medicaid, you will receive a Medicaid card in the mail. This card will allow you to see doctors and receive other health care services in Texas.
