The Texas Medicaid Wellness Program is a special health program for people who get Medicaid and have long-lasting or serious health conditions.
People who get traditional fee-for-service Medicaid can join the wellness program.
Most people who can be in this program will be invited to join. A letter will be sent to them. They also will get a phone call from the wellness program.
