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).
Visit the STAR+PLUS Expansion webpage and watch a video to learn more.
