STAR+PLUS Expansion News

People with intellectual and developmental disabilities covered by Medicaid will need to choose a STAR+PLUS health plan this summer for their doctor, hospital visits, and medications. Starting Sept. 1, these people will get their basic medical services through STAR+PLUS.

The change applies to people who live in a community-based intermediate care facility for individuals with intellectual disabilities or related conditions (ICF-IID) or receive services through one of the following ICF-IID waiver programs:

  • Home and Community-based Services (HCS),
  • Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS),
  • Texas Home Living (TxHmL), or
  • Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities (DBMD).
