Renew your Texas Medicaid or CHIP  benefits


Keep your coverage. Be sure to renew your STAR, STAR Kids, STAR+PLUS, or CHIP benefits every twelve months.

Ready to renew?


It’s quick and easy. Follow these steps to renew your benefits:

1. Check your mailbox.


You’ll get a notice in the mail from the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) when it’s time to renew.

2. Visit Your Texas Benefits.


Choose Manage Your Account to log in or create your account.

3. Complete your online renewal.

STAR Kids and STAR+PLUS members with Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

You may not need to renew your benefits every twelve months. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will review your eligibility once every one to six years, or when you report a change affecting eligibility or the benefit amount.

Have you moved?


If you moved this past year, HHSC needs your new address. Call Texas Health and Human Services Commission at 2-1-1. They can also help you with your renewal.

Need help renewing?


Log into your Texas Benefits account or call 2-1-1 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central time. Select your preferred language, then press 2.

What if you lose your coverage?


You can still reapply for Medicaid. If you apply within 60 days of the date you lost coverage and you’re still eligible, you’ll return to Wellpoint. Call 2-1-1 or visit the Your Texas Benefits website to get started.
