Benefits for You
Finding the right health plan for your children is important. Texas Children's Health Plan is here to help. We offer coverage for children through CHIP and STAR Medicaid. Most CHIP families pay $35 per year or less to cover all of their children. Medicaid is free for children who qualify.
We also offer health coverage for pregnant women and adults. Each program is a little different. Click the links below to learn more.
