I applied for CHIP, but you denied my application. I think you were wrong in your decision. Is there a way I can appeal?

If you have a question, you can ask us to take another look at your application. Within 30 days of receiving the letter denying coverage, send us a letter telling us the reason you think we made a mistake. Your letter must be in writing, and it must be signed. Your request cannot be made over the phone. Please send your letter to:

P.O. Box 149023
Austin, TX 78714-9023

Or you can fax your letter to 1-855-671-6038.

I know someone on CHIP, but I’m sure the family makes way more than the CHIP income limit. Who can check into that?

If you suspect fraud of the CHIP or Children’s Medicare programs, please call the HHSC Office of the Inspector General toll-free at 1-800-436-6184. You can also report waste, fraud, or abuse on the HHSC Office of the Inspector General website.
