During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, your or your child’s Medicaid/CHIP coverage was most likely continuously renewed by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). Now that the Public Health Emergency is coming to an end, you MUST take action in order to keep your Medicaid/CHIP benefits.

How To Renew By Mail
Look for an envelope marked “time-sensitive.” It will be mailed to you 3 to 4 months before your benefits end.
- Carefully read the Renewal Letter (Form H1211).
- Each person listed on the letter might need to take a different action to renew.
- If more information is asked from you, you must:
- Send in all forms or paperwork necessary.
- Send in a signed renewal form either by going to YourTexasBenefits.com or by asking for a paper form. (The letter will tell you how to do this.)
If you don’t take the action needed by the due date listed on your Renewal Letter, your benefits may end.
Keep Your Health Care Coverage
It’s important that you renew your health care coverage by your renewal date. You can check your renewal date and begin the renewal process online at YourTexasBenefits.com.
Once you submit your renewal, HHSC will review your information to make sure that you are still eligible for Medicaid/CHIP.
