Despite your health condition, Health Plan One can provide you with information regarding health coverage. This page will assist you with Texas Group Coverage, Medicaid (CHIP), and high risk pool. All three programs can assist those who are medically uninsurable or those who can’t afford private insurance to obtain basic health coverage.
With group health insurance through an employer the policy is partially paid for by your company. Typically the company will contribute a large percentage toward monthly premiums and you pay the difference (Approximately 16-27%). You cannot be denied coverage with group plans regardless of prescriptions you make take and/or any preexisting conditions you may have. For more information regarding group coverage contact us at (877) 567-5267.
If you qualify for Medicaid in Texas the state will pay for your doctor appointment’s bill minus any other health insurance you may have. The program pays for services such as acute care services, prescription drugs, and long-term services and supports, depending on need.
The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is the Medicaid program offered in Texas covering Texans 18 and under. The program is provided at no cost to any child that belongs to a qualifying family. CHIP targets families who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid but still cannot afford private health insurance. Enrollment fees and co-payments are based on your family’s income. For each 12 month term of eligibility, family’s enrollment fees are less than $50. Also, co-payments for doctor visits and prescription drugs range from $3 to $10. Benefits include, regular checkups and office visits, dentist visits (cleaning and fillings), vaccines, mental health care, and eye exams (And glasses).
