Financial Assistance

Continuous Medicaid coverage ends on March 31, 2023. There are three things you need to do to ensure your coverage remains active.
  1. Look for the notice saying “Action Required” in a yellow envelope from HHSC and respond quickly when you get it.
  2. Update your information as soon as possible, especially if your contact information has changed. You can do this by logging into your account at or through the Your Texas Benefits mobile app.
  3. If you don’t have an account, you can create one on the website or mobile app. Or you can call 2-1-1 and choose option 2 to update your information.

In the event you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, we are here to help you. Contact the Eligibility Center at 817-702-1001 for assistance.
