Medicaid - Healthcare for Low-Income Families
Health Care Coverage: Low-income Families
A family with a parent or relative caring for a child under age 19 may receive health care coverage through Medicaid if certain income and resource requirements are met. HHSC looks at a family’s income and compares it with the amount the family pays for basic needs such as rent, utilities, child care and work-related expenses. Resources such as cash on hand, money in the bank and value of vehicles are also considered.
