The Kendall County Indigent Health Care Program (CIHCP) is a state mandated program administered by the County. Program rules and eligibility standards are set by the State of Texas.

Eligibility Requirements:

Our office provides medically needed health assistance to those who meet the income, resources, residency, and household composition:

  • those who are 21% of poverty income level or below
  • a household who has less total countable household resources not exceeding $3,000 when a person living in the home is aged or has disabilities and they meet relationship requirements
  • under $2,000 in total countable resources for all other households
  • residents of Kendall County

The program is also available to undocumented persons who meet eligibility requirements.

  • Verifying documentation/proof of income and resources must be provided to assist the department in determining eligibility.
    The process can take two weeks to complete once all required documentation is received.

Applicants are not eligible for indigent health care benefits if they are eligible for any other Federal, State, or private benefits.  For example, Medicaid, Medicare, VA, CHIPS or other insurance.

Indigent Health Care is, by law, the payer of last resort, and all other resources must be explored first (when medically appropriate to do so).

Services Provided:

Persons who qualify for the Kendall County Indigent Health Care Program receive medical services from local providers (doctors, clinics, hospitals, labs) and three (3) prescriptions per month.
