About Medicaid in Texas*
"Medicaid is the State and Federal cooperative venture that provides medical coverage to eligible needy persons. The purpose of Medicaid in Texas is to improve the health of people who might otherwise go without medical care for themselves and their children. Medicaid is different in every state. HHSC's Medicaid Office is responsible for statewide oversight of the Texas Medicaid Program." *source: Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Austin, TX 78708-5200
Texas Children’s Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program:
"Low-income children may receive health care coverage through the Children's Medicaid program or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Both programs provide a wide range of benefits to keep kids healthy, including doctor’s visits, immunizations, prescription drugs, lab and X-ray charges, hospital care, eyeglasses and dental services."*source: Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Austin, TX 78708-5200
