Help your patients keep their New Year’s resolutions in 2019!
Texas Children’s Health Plan offers two programs that can help your patients stick to their New Year’s resolutions well into 2019!
The Keep Fit program is available to STAR and CHIP patients ages 10-18 with a BMI of 20+. This program helps kids learn fun, easy ways to stay active and make smart food choices. It offers health coaching, four health and fitness sessions, at-home workout materials, and a quarterly newsletter – all at no cost to the member’s family. If you have patients who are interested in the Keep Fit Program, they can call 832-828-1580 or visit TexasChildrensHealthPlan.org/KeepFit for more information.
The Smoking Cessation program is available to tobacco-dependent parents/caregivers of STAR, CHIP, and STAR Kids patients. As a provider, you are able to refer a parent or caregiver to the Texas Children’s Health Plan Care Management Program for stop-smoking counseling. They will also be able to receive up to $75 per month to go toward nicotine replacement products. If you have parents or caregivers who are interested in the Smoking Cessation program, they can call Texas Children’s Health Plan Member Services at 1-866-959-6555 (CHIP), 1-866-959-2555 (STAR), or 1-800-659-5764 (STAR Kids) for more information.
