  • Medically Needy Program

    The Medically Needy Program provides Medicaid benefits to children younger than age 19, and pregnant women whose families make too much money for regular Medicaid. This means that the pregnant woman or child may qualify for the Medically Needy Program if they have high medical bills and they do not have enough monthly income to pay these bills. The pregnant woman or child can qualify for this program on a month-to-month basis. Some of these bills may include:

    • Doctor's visits
    • Prescriptions
    • Past medical bills
    • Medical insurance charges

    NOTE: The Medically Needy Program is not for people who qualify for any other Medicaid program.

  • Medicare

    A health insurance program paid for by the federal government, not by the state of Texas.

S
