M-2210, How to Report a Change

Revision 15-4; Effective October 1, 2015

Centralized Benefit Services (CBS) staff process all changes for Medicaid for Transitioning Foster Care Youth (MTFCY) recipients. MTFCY recipients can report changes:

  • online through YourTexasBenefits.com;
  • by visiting a local eligibility determination office (which will forward the change to CBS);
  • by calling 2-1-1; or
  • in writing, by mail or fax, or by completing Form H1019, Report of Change. The individual may mail or fax the change to:
    • Document Processing Center:

P.O. Box 149024
Austin, TX 78714-9024
Toll-free fax: 1-877-447-2839

  • A local eligibility determination office (which will send the change to CBS).

Note: When a change is reported by telephone, staff must verify that the person speaking is the individual or an authorized representative.

An individual is continuously eligible for MTFCY for 12 months or through the month of his 21st birthday, whichever is earlier.

An individual must report the following changes:

  • an address change;
  • income, including sources of income, regular hours worked, and pay rate;
  • Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) expenses;
  • voluntary withdrawal of the individual;
  • receipt of health insurance; or
  • if the individual moves out of state.

Process all other changes, including agency-generated changes, at the next renewal.

Exception: If the individual failed to report required information at the time of the application that causes the individual to be ineligible for MTFCY, advisors must deny the benefits and send a fraud referral to the Office of the Inspector General.
