This program is designed to meet the unique needs of youth and children with disabilities. STAR Kids will provide personal attendant and respite care services for individuals with special needs who are 20 years and younger. We work with you to decide on the most appropriate personal assistance services depending on their needs and level of function.

The STAR Kids program includes:

  • Personal hygiene and grooming services
  • Meal preparation and feeding
  • Cleaning tasks, including laundry
  • Transfer and travel services

Eligibility is determined by Texas Health and Human Services (HHS). The application is then sent to a managed care organization for authorization. For more information, you may contact your local HHS or visit Your Texas Benefits.

STAR + PLUS/STAR + PLUS Waiver Services

Texas’ STAR + PLUS program provides a variety of services for Medicaid-approved recipients who are 21 years or older. Clients must meet medical necessity, financial needs, and eligibility for nursing home placement, but want to stay at home.

STAR + PLUS/STAR + PLUS Waiver services include:

  • Personal assistance (bathing, dressing, etc.)
  • Respite care

Eligibility is determined by the HHS. Your Managed Care Organization (CCO) representative may know if you qualify for additional services.
