Notification of Renewal: Once HHSC receives the renewal application and documents of proof, staff checks to see if the children in the family still qualify for their current program or if they qualify for a different program.

If a child is referred to another program (Medicaid or CHIP), HHSC sends the family a letter telling them about the referral and then looks to see if the child can get benefits in the other program. If the child qualifies, the coverage in the new program (Medicaid or CHIP) begins the month following the last month of the other program’s coverage.

During renewal, the family can pick new medical and dental plans by calling the CHIP/Children’s Medicaid call center at 1.800.964.2777.
