University Community Care Plan FAQs
I/my child is no longer eligible for Medicaid. Can I apply for University Community Care Plan?
Will I qualify for savings or get help paying for my plan?
Most people qualify for savings. When you apply for University Community Care Plan, you’ll find out if you qualify for:
- Savings, like a tax credit that lowers your monthly premium
- Extra savings (called “cost-sharing reductions”) to lower what you pay when you get services, like
deductibles and copays
When can I apply for coverage?
Open enrollment for 2024 coverage is November 1, 2023 through January 15, 2024.
You can also get health insurance if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period, a limited time when you can enroll due to a life event, like losing other coverage, getting married, having a baby, or a change in your estimated household income. Your coverage generally starts the first of the month after you enroll.
If you have Medicaid or CHIP and Texas Health and Human Services (HHSC) finds that your household income is too high or other changes make you ineligible, you may lose your Medicaid or CHIP coverage. Apply for Marketplace coverage right away. You can apply and enroll in University Community Care Plan as early as 60 days before your Medicaid or CHIP coverage ends to avoid a gap in coverage.
