Find out more about Medicaid in Spring, TX and whether you qualify.

We always hope our children stay healthy. However, does your child have healthcare coverage to protect against those times when he does become ill? If health care is too expensive, you still have options. Your Spring, TX pediatrician is here to tell you everything you need to know about Texas’s Medicaid program:

Q. What does Medicaid in Texas cover?

Medicaid can cover your child’s medical bills including doctors, hospitals and medications. The Medicaid services you receive will depend on where you live in Texas and if your child has any medical conditions.

Q. Does Medicaid offer different medical plans?

Yes. STAR is one of the Medicaid programs from which most children in Texas get coverage. Once your child is approved for Medicaid, you can chose from different plans and pick the plan that is right for your child. Then you need to choose your child’s primary care provider, who will become your child’s main pediatrician.

Q. How does Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) decide if my child gets Medicaid?

HHSC looks at several things to determine if your child can qualify for Medicaid. They examine the amount of money you make, how many people are in your household, what you own and the bills you pay. Your child’s age is also a determining factor. Younger children with a higher income level are more likely than older children to get Medicaid. If a child is not able to get Medicaid, then they will find out whether the child is then eligible for CHIP.
