A) To change your child’s name on their Medicaid card after an adoption from foster care, you will need to submit a request to your state’s Medicaid agency. The process for changing a child’s name on their Medicaid card may vary depending on the state, so it’s important to check with your state’s specific Medicaid agency for instructions.
Generally, you will need to provide the following documents:
- A copy of the child’s birth certificate
- A copy of the adoption decree
- A copy of the child’s new legal name change certificate
You may be asked to submit these documents in-person, by mail, or electronically, depending on the state’s policies. It is good to contact your state’s Medicaid agency for more information on the specific requirements and process for changing a child’s name on their Medicaid card.
