Texas Children’s Health Plan CMOs introduces STAR KidsTexas Children's Health Plan
Over the past year and a half, the Texas Children’s Health Plan has been preparing for STAR Kids. This program will offer families with medically complex children the advantage of increased care coordination as part of Medicaid Managed Care. Some of the incredible numbers:
- 250+ new care coordinators hired and trained by Texas Children’s Health Plan
- 2,000 new providers added to our network
- 30,000 new members expected
STAR Kids will offer providers additional support and help to reduce the many hassles we run into when caring for patients with complicated medical needs. In the process of bringing the STAR Kids program on-line, we have had the privilege of visiting with many of the providers in the community who have always provided excellent care for our most vulnerable population. We are inspired by the great work completed in our community every day, and excited to strengthen our current relationship by adding assistance to you, the patients and their families. November 1 cannot come soon enough, and we look forward to providing better service to our provider network, members and their families.
