How to Renew

STAR, STAR Kids, STAR+PLUS and CHIP members need to renew benefits every twelve months to keep them. If you don’t renew on time, you could lose your benefits.

 But don’t worry! Just follow these easy steps to renew your benefits.

1. Check your mail.

You’ll get a notice in the mail from the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) when it’s time to renew.

2. Visit Your Texas Benefits

Choose Manage Your Account  to log in or create your account.

3. Complete your online renewal.

*Note for STAR Kids and STAR+PLUS members with Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

You may not need to renew your benefits every twelve months. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will review your eligibility once every one to six years, or when you report a change affecting eligibility or the benefit amount.

Have you moved?

If you moved this past year, HHSC needs your new address! Call Texas Health and Human Services Commission at 2-1-1. They can also help you with your renewal.
