Texas Medicaid decoded

Medicaid is the government health program for the poor or people with few resources in USA. This program is funded jointly by the federal and state governments and is operated by the state governments. States almost solely decide who is eligible for the program and how the program is to be implemented. U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents including low-income adults, their children, and people with certain disabilities are entitled for Medicaid.

The Health and Human Services Commission of Texas (HHSC) handles the Texas Medicaid program. It aims to improve the life of those in need of assistance to pay their medical bills for health care and long term care in Texas. This could include coverage for doctor visits, hospital visits, Pregnancy and Childbirth care, Speech & Physical Therapy, dental care, vision care and other medical needs. Texas Medicaid usually covers children, pregnant woman, people aged 65 and above and those with disabilities.

To avail the Texas Medicaid Benefits, one must submit a Texas Medicaid Application online or in paper form to HHSC Office. You would need to check your eligibility and what benefits you can claim before filing the Texas Medicaid Application. The eligibility would be determined on the basis of your own and family information, the money you have and make and all the bills you pay. Once you know you are eligible you can apply for the benefits and subsequently track your case regularly at www.yourtexasbenefits.com. You can also submit a paper application for the same.

If you find it difficult determining your eligibility or need help with filing a claim you can always seek help of the Medicaid lawyers. Texas Medicaid Programs are designed to help the people of Texas and in case you are not able to make sense of all the information about the application process and requirements from you, then seek help. You can also contact the HHSC department directly.

Texas Medicaid Programs for recipients include Children’s Healthcare, Women’s Healthcare, 65+ and disabilities healthcare, SNAP food benefits, Cash help for families, Tax help, Disaster Help, Family Violence programs and Refugee settlement programs. The Texas Medicaid Wellness Program is designed to help people with Medicaid who need long term care or have serious illnesses.

In Texas, there are 4 different types of Medicaid available - STAR, STAR+PLUS, STAR Health, and traditional Medicaid. The type of Medicaid coverage a person gets depends on where the person lives and what kind of health issues the person has.

The Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP) undertakes the Medicaid claims payment, under contract with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. This is done through a coalition of contractors headed by ACS,
