Extracurricular Activity Fee Assistance

Texas Children’s Health Plan understands that being part of a sports/physical program can help provide children with special healthcare needs both the physical and emotion support they need. There are sports/physical programs and other extracurricular activities, like joining a local basketball team, learning to swim, the arts, or even ballet, that use adaptive techniques for boys and girls with physical and development challenges. We will offer fee assistance for any sports/physical activity or extracurricular programs available in the member’s area up to $100 per year.

How do I claim my extra benefit?

Sign your child up for a sports/physical program or extracurricular activity in your area and pay their registration/membership fees to the organization. Then mail the receipt and confirmation of registration back to Texas Children’s Health Plan for processing and reimbursement of up to $100. 

How will I receive it?

Members will receive a reimbursement check via U.S. Mail.
