Serving everyone in our communities

RightCare is how we make the Texas STAR program even better for our Medicaid members. It starts with health benefits and piles on extra benefits that cover everything from asthma care to car seats. Best of all, it’s all free for you.

What is STAR?

STAR is a state-managed care program that covers low-income Texans at no cost to them. This program covers children, newborns, pregnant women, and select families.

Renew your benefits with the HHSC app

Typically, STAR benefits last up to six months. Near the end of your coverage, we’ll let you know it’s time to renew your plan. If your renewal is turned in late, there is a chance that you might lose your RightCare STAR Medicaid coverage and benefits. 

There's no easier way to renew your benefits on time than with the Your Texas Benefits app, created by the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). Receive alerts, upload files and submit updates — including change of address or phone number — through your iOS or Android smartphone.

Sign up for the app at, or download it at the App Store (iOS) or at Google Play (Android).
