Texas Children’s Health Plan

Our Health Plan brings the culture of Texas Children’s to the communities of eastern Texas, from the Greater Houston area, over to Beaumont, and up to the Tyler area.

Since 1996, when Texas Children’s Health Plan began as the nation’s first health maintenance organization (HMO) created just for children, we have experienced massive growth. During this growth, our territories of coverage have expanded, allowing us to create hundreds of new jobs and accelerate our employees’ careers.

Our dedicated team at Texas Children’s Health Plan enjoys the same benefits and career possibilities as our medical teams, while getting to provide life changing healthcare resources, including STAR Kids, CHIP, and STAR.

What We Offer


The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) offers low-cost health coverage for children from birth through age 18. CHIP is designed for families who earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford to buy private health coverage.

We offer CHIP in more than 20 counties in the Jefferson and Harris Service Areas.


STAR is a Medicaid-managed care plan. This plan helps family members of any age. Texas Children’s Health Plan offers STAR in more than 20 counties in the Jefferson and Harris Service Areas.


STAR Kids will specifically serve youth and children who get disability-related Medicaid. Texas Children’s Health Plan will be the provider for these services for the service area designated by the state of Texas.

The program launches in November 2016 for children and youth age 20 or younger who either receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Medicaid or are enrolled in the Medically Dependent Children Program (MDCP). The Health Plan will help the family manage their medical needs as well as acting as a care coordinator between physicians and families.

The Center For Children and Women

The Center for Children and Women is a new kind of medical facility designed to put everything in one place. It offers state-of-the-art health-care services and is only for Texas Children's Health Plan members. Open 7 days a week, evenings, and weekends, The Center provides comprehensive services patients need in one place. Everything from checkups to teeth cleanings, eye exams, OB doctors, lab tests and a pharmacy are all located on-site. Walk-ins and appointments are accepted to provide the most flexibility for our patients.
