Definition and Source



Number and percent of children (birth to age 18) enrolled in the Texas Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). "NA" for the percentage means population estimates are not yet available to calculate percentages. 

Data Source

Texas Health and Human Services Commission


This is point-in-time data from August of each fiscal year and is generally accepted as being representative of monthly enrollment.

As part of the Affordable Care Act, CHIP clients under 133% FPL were moved to Medicaid beginning in January 2014. The decrease in 2014 and 2015 numbers reflects that transition process. See "Medicaid Enrollment" for the corresponding increase.

2021-2022 numbers may be significantly different due to changes caused by COVID-19.
