CHIP enrollment (0-18)

Change Indicator


Definitions: Number and percent of children ages 0-18 enrolled in the Texas Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). "NA" for the percentage means population estimates are not yet available to calculate percentages. 

Data Source: Texas Health and Human Services Commission

Footnotes: This is point-in-time data from August of each fiscal year and is generally accepted as being representative of monthly enrollment.

As part of the Affordable Care Act, CHIP clients under 133% FPL were moved to Medicaid beginning in January 2014. The decrease in 2014 and 2015 numbers reflects that transition process. See "Medicaid Enrollment" for the corresponding increase.
