If your child is able to get Children's Medicaid, there is no cost to you for covered services.

Co-pays for covered services like doctor visits and prescriptions range from $3 to $5 for lower-income families and $20 to $35 for higher-income families.

Eligible Members may receive one $10 Walmart gift card for taking the following steps if they have had to visit a hospital emergency room for a dental related issue:
As of September 1, 2021, the extra benefits will change. There will no longer be a $10 Walmart gift card for signing up for the member portal.
To join Medicaid or CHIP, the first step is to qualify for benefits. To do that, you’ll need to visit YourTexasBenefits.com. At the site, you can also find out about medical benefits, WIC and SNAP food benefits, and cash assistance.
To qualify a child must be:
• Age 18 or younger (children up to age 20 can qualify for Medicaid in some cases).
• A Texas resident.
• A U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.
What if I am not a U.S. citizen?The state does not ask about the citizenship or immigration status of the parent. Only the child must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident in Texas to be considered for CHIP/Children’s Medicaid coverage.
Once you qualify for benefits, you can call the enrollment broker to pick your plan. Be sure to tell them that you choose DentaQuest for dental services. You can reach the Enrollment Broker at 1-800-964-2777. Enrollment Broker Hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Central Time Monday to Friday except federal holidays. TTY Service: Federal Relay Service 7‐1‐1.
