For most Medicaid for Transitioning Foster Care Youth (MTFCY) applications received via the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) interface, citizenship and alien status has been verified. For MTFCY applications not received via the DFPS interface, a period of reasonable opportunity may be granted if necessary, following the Medical Programs policy for citizenship and alien status eligibility in A-300, Citizenship.
