The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) welcomes STAR Kids providers to participate in the Comprehensive Health Homes for Integrated Care (CHIC) Kids Pilot program. The pilot program will focus on members of the STAR Kids program who have multiple chronic conditions and are under age 21.
The goals of the pilot are to:
- Provide enhanced care coordination through a health home specifically designed for children with medically complex conditions.
- Improve access to care, health outcomes, and member satisfaction among children with medically complex conditions and their families.
- Reduce administrative burden for managed care organizations (MCOs) and providers.
To participate, providers must partner with an MCO in developing project plans to create or enhance a home health model for children with medically complex conditions. Project plans must be submitted by MCOs to HHSC for review and approval by August 12, 2022.
The opportunity to participate includes instructions for submission and core requirements for participation. All participation is voluntary for MCOs, providers, and members. The pilot will run from December 1, 2022, until December 31, 2023.
