NOTE: If you have Medicaid coverage (and not CHIP), you do not need to renew at this time.
Check Your ID Card
When you became a member, PCHP sent you a Member Identification (ID)
Card in the mail. Your membership date is listed on the card.
Proof of your age (birth certificate or driver’s license) and citizenship.
Proof of all sources of income from the last 60 days (pay stubs or tax return, Social Security, and any other income).
Proof of you live in Texas (rent receipts or landlord statements, a copy of your mortgage, or utility bill)
You must provide all the information requested in the application. If you don’t, your coverage may be denied. Be sure to have these items ready when completing your application.
