Medicaid

Medicaid is the State and Federal cooperative venture that provides medical coverage to eligible needy persons. The purpose of Medicaid in Texas is to improve the health of people who might otherwise go without medical care for themselves and their children. Although Medicaid in Texas is different from other states, Baylor accepts Medicaid from many other states as well. If you would like to know if Baylor accepts Medicaid from your state, please call 1-800-725-0024.

Crime Victims

Texas courts collect court costs from convicted offenders for the Crime Victims' Compensation Fund. If you are a victim of violent crime, you may be eligible for benefits.

The County Indigent Heath Care Program

County Indigent Health Care Program provides health care services to eligible residents through the counties, hospital districts and public hospitals in Texas. Counties that are not fully served by a public facility, i.e., a hospital district or a public hospital, are responsible for administering an indigent health care program for eligible residents of all or any portion of the county not served by a public facility. If you live outside of Dallas or Tarrant County and meet the minimum program requirements, you may qualify for this program.
