Form 4807-D serves as:
- A documentation form for staff to record information to be entered in the Texas Integrated Eligibility Redesign System (TIERS) Fair Hearing system in order to notify the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Fair Hearings Division that staff has completed or delayed implementing the hearing decision.
- A record for the case record file of the hearing decision and actions taken by program staff.
When to Prepare
The program representative prepares Form 4807-D in response to receipt of the official hearing decision from the Fair Hearings officer reversing the agency’s decision.
Transmittal and Copies
The program representative prepares an original and two copies and sends the original and one copy to the program representative’s supervisor. One copy is retained in the case record file until the original is returned. The supervisor reviews the form for accuracy, retains one copy and sends the original to the designated data entry representative. The data entry representative enters the information in the TIERS Fair Hearing system and signs and dates the form when completed. The data entry representative sends the original Form 4807-D back to the program representative to file in the case record.
Program Representative/Agency Action
Upon receipt of the official decision from the hearing officer, the program representative who attended the hearing implements the action required within 10 calendar days or provides information on implementation delays. The program representative completes Form 4807-D and sends it with a copy to the supervisor for approval and signature along with the appropriate supporting documentation.
Program Supervisor Action
The supervisor reviews the hearing officer’s decision and action taken by the program representative. If the action is approved, the supervisor:
- ensures that all entries are complete and correct;
- signs the form and enters the date; and
- sends the form to the designated data entry representative to enter into the TIERS system.
