B-8300, Who May Sign a Redetermination Form

Revision 12-4; Effective December 1, 2012

Note: A person who may complete or sign a redetermination form for a recipient may possibly not be on the list of people to whom HHSC can release the recipient’s individually identifiable health information. See C-5000, Personal Representatives, for persons who may receive or authorize the release of a recipient’s individually identifiable health information under HIPAA privacy regulations.

See B-3220, Who May Sign an Application for Assistance, to determine who may sign a redetermination form. The requirements for signing a redetermination form are the same as the requirements for signing an application.

Note: A signature is not needed when the redetermination is passive or simplified. See B-8440, Streamlined Redetermination (Passive Redetermination).
