KIDSfirst CHIP Perinate
If you are pregnant, a Texas resident, you do not have insurance, and you can’t get Medicaid, you may be able to get perinatal coverage from CHIP. This coverage is for your unborn baby. It covers your labor with delivery and your baby’s health and medical services for its first months of life.
There is no lifetime maximum on benefits; however, a 12-month enrollment period or lifetime limitations do apply to certain services, as explained in the member handbook. The Member Handbook is available in hard copy without charge, and the MCO or Dental Contractor must provide it upon request within 5 Business Days.
You should see your child’s doctor to ask about medical services for your child. Your baby will receive the same benefits as all other CHIP members, except there are no co-pays while on CHIP Perinatal. Call Members Services at 1-888-814-2352. We are here Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. if you have any questions.
If your Member ID card is lost or stolen, please call us right away so we can send you another one.
If you need a qualified interpreter, written information in other formats, translation or other services, call the number on your ID card or 1-800-385-4104.
We have special services for people who have trouble reading, hearing, seeing, or speak a language other than English or Spanish. You can ask for the Member Handbook in audio, other languages, Braille or larger print. If you need an audiocassette or CD, we will mail it to you. You can also ask for the Member handbook in Braille or larger print. To get help, just call or write Parkland KIDSfirst Member Services at 1-888-814-2352 or mail to:
