|(a) When a Title IV-E foster care assistance recipient is placed out of state, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) continues to make foster care maintenance payments; but the receiving state becomes responsible for the Medicaid benefits. DFPS furnishes the receiving state with Title IV-E eligibility information for payment of Medicaid benefits. (b) When a state-paid or medical-assistance-only foster care recipient is placed out of state, DFPS continues to provide both Medicaid benefits and foster care maintenance payments, as applicable. (c) When a Title IV-E foster care assistance recipient is placed in Texas from another state, the sending state continues to make Title IV-E foster care maintenance payments, but DFPS provides the Medicaid coverage. The sending state furnishes DFPS with Title IV-E eligibility information for payment of Medicaid benefits.
