W-1930, Length of Certification

Revision 17-2; Effective April 1, 2017

The Texas Integrated Eligibility Redesign System (TIERS) calculates an end date from the date the advisor certifies the application/renewal as follows:

  • Applications — initial certification month plus 11 months.
  • Renewals — 12 months from the last certification month.

Women are continuously eligible for Healthy Texas Women benefits for 12 months or through the month of the woman's 45th birthday, whichever is earlier.

Exception: A woman does not receive her 12 months of continuous eligibility if she:

  • is found eligible for Medicaid, Medicare (Part A or B) or the Children's Health Insurance Program;
  • dies;
  • voluntarily withdraws; or
  • moves out of Texas.
