Longer Eligibility Period
Starting on September 1, 2013, eligibility for the Children with Special Health Care Needs Services Program will go to a twelve-month period. This means that renewal applications will be required only once a year instead of every six months. To align financial and medical eligibility periods, clients will need to submit a full application including a Physician/Dentist Assessment Form (PAF) the next time they renew.
Drug Benefit Changes
Effective Monday, November 12, 2012, pharmacies in Texas that have a contract with the Children with Special Health Care Needs Services Program will be able to provide a limited set of basic home health supplies to CSHCN clients. These Limited Home Health Supplies (LHHS) include diabetic test strips, lancets, insulin syringes and needles, oral electrolyte replacement fluids, hypertonic saline solution, and spacers for inhalers.
