Federal glitch could delay children’s health coverage

AUSTIN -- Families with children who might qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) should apply for children’s coverage through the state to avoid a delay in getting help because of problems with the new federal exchange.

The federal health insurance exchange was scheduled to begin accepting applications Oct. 1. If someone applies through the federal website and is eligible for Medicaid or CHIP, the federal government is supposed to forward the information to the state. However, states recently received word that the federal exchange isn’t yet able to send information to states.

Medicaid and CHIP cover children in families earning up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level, or $47,100 a year for a family of four. The programs provide comprehensive health coverage for more than 3 million Texas children. Families can apply for Medicaid and CHIP at YourTexasBenefits.com.

The state website, YourTexasBenefits.com, also added a page to help people understand what help they may qualify for and the best place to apply. Users will see the new page after they click on “Apply for benefits” on the home page.
