Postpartum Portable Crib | Texas Children's Health Plan

Postpartum Portable Crib

Your health is just as important as your baby’s. That’s why you should complete a postpartum checkup with your provider 21 to 56 days after giving birth. When you do, we’ll send you a portable crib for your new baby! A portable crib helps you make sure your baby plays and sleeps safely.

How do I claim my extra benefit?

You will get a postcard in the mail after you give birth. You can also download a claim form here. Fill out the tear-off portion of the postcard or claim form and bring the form to your postpartum checkup for your provider to sign. Once you mail the form back to Texas Children’s Health Plan, we’ll send you a portable crib!

If you complete your postpartum checkup at The Center for Children and Women, you can pick up your portable crib there after your checkup.

Who is eligible?

CHIP, STAR, and STAR Kids members who complete a postpartum checkup 21 to 56 days after giving birth.
