Care beyond health care

Amerigroup has been helping Texas families get the health-care benefits they need since 1996. With our experience and over 800,000 members in Texas, we know health insurance is about more than just doctor visits.

Our benefits are designed to make a difference in your day-to-day life, with things like reward programs for completing healthy activities, Boys & Girls Clubs memberships, and much more. We’ll help you get the care and services you need to live your best life. And we’ll guide you every step of the way — so you can stay focused on your health.

We offer these Texas Medicaid and CHIP programs:

  • STAR — for kids, pregnant women, and people who get Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
    • Beginning September 1, 2017, children and young adults in the Adoption Assistance and Permanency Care Assistance programs (AAPCA)
  • CHIP — for kids whose parents don’t qualify for Medicaid
  • CHIP Perinatal services – for the unborn children of pregnant women who don’t qualify for Medicaid
  • STAR Kids — for people age 20 and younger who have a disability
    • Beginning September 1, 2017, children and young adults in the Adoption Assistance and Permanency Care Assistance programs (AAPCA)
  • STAR+PLUS — for people ages 65 and older and adults with disabilities who may get SSI
    • September 1, 2017, women age 18-64 in the Medicaid Breast and Cervical Cancer (MBCC) program get benefits under STAR+PLUS

You can be sure our plans are approved by the experts. We’re accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Your health is important — and our experienced team can help you stay focused on it

We’ll help you get care from a primary care provider you choose, help from a nurse any time day or night with our 24-Hour Nurse Helpline, and many extras just for being our member.

If you have special health care needs, we’ll set up a health assessment for you. If you need it, a case manager can help you get extra plan benefits, the medical equipment you need, community services to support you, and more.

STAR Kids and STAR+PLUS members will get a service coordinator who will create a care plan based on your health needs and goals, and work with you to coordinate all the services you get from us and programs outside Amerigroup.

Our doctors are here to serve you, and our team is ready to help

We have one of the largest provider networks in the state. Find out if your doctor is in our health plan.

Our helpful support team is easy to reach because we’re more than just a website and a phone number. Over 1,000 team members work in our local offices that serve over 230 counties in Texas. We’re here to focus on caring for you and other Amerigroup members.

To learn what matters to you, we just ask

Our team looks for new ways to meet your needs by hearing what you have to say. Help make us better by joining a member advisory group. At these events, you can talk with Amerigroup about your concerns or give us ideas. All Amerigroup members are invited.

Call Member Services and ask to speak to a member advocate if you’d like to attend an event in your area. You can also email our member advocates at dl-txmemberadvocates@anthem.com.

Amerigroup members in the Medicaid Rural Service Area and the STAR Kids program are served by Amerigroup Insurance Company; all other Amerigroup members in Texas are served by Amerigroup Texas, Inc.
