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.
