CHIP Member Handbook
Community participates in the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), including CHIP Perinatal (CHIP-P). CHIP is a health insurance plan for children under the age of 19 and is designed for families who earn too much money to qualify for Texas Medicaid programs, yet cannot afford to buy private insurance. CHIP-P provides prenatal care for the unborn children of low-income women who do not qualify for Medicaid.
STAR Member Handbook
Community participates in the State of Texas Access Reform (STAR) Managed Care Program (Medicaid). As a part of Medicaid, Community provides both Children’s Medicaid and Medicaid for Pregnant Women. These programs are at no cost to U.S. residents who cannot afford health insurance.
Community proudly offers individual health insurance in the new Health Insurance Marketplace. With a range of plan options to fit any budget, and a network of doctors you can trust, like Kelsey-Seybold Clinic and Memorial Hermann, Community makes it easy to get the care you need and deserve.
During the Health Insurance Marketplace’s open enrollment, October 31 through March 31, our Member Services Department will be extending their hours. We’ll be answering phone calls from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. to make sure that you can get the help you need, when you need it.
