1. A U.S. passport does not have to be currently valid to be accepted as evidence of U.S. citizenship, as long as it was originally issued without limitation. NOTE: spouses and children were sometimes included on one passport through 1980. U.S. passports issued after 1980 show only one person. Consequently, the citizenship and identity of the included person can be established when one of these passports is presented. EXCEPTION: Do not accept any passport as evidence of U.S. citizenship when it was issued with a limitation. However, such a passport may be used as proof of identity.
2. Medicare and SSI recipients do not have to verify their citizenship and identity as they have previously been verified by SSA.
3. When a person in the online enrollment population provides verification, the worker updates Agency View to show verification was received, images the document or places it in a case record, and documents receipt of the verification in case notes. When the person does not have a case number or case record with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS), the worker sends the verification to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority and does not update Agency View.
4. Designated OKDHS staff will have access to the OSDH web based verification system to verify record of Oklahoma birth. The birth record document must have been issued before the person was five years of age.
5. See OKDHS Appendix J, Citizenship and Alienage.
