What is Texas Health Steps?
Texas Health Steps is Medicaid's medical and dental preventive child health service for individuals younger than 21 years old in Texas.
All children in DFPS conservatorship (care) are eligible for this service including medical and dental care.
During doctor or dentist visits, the medical consenter should ask whether there is any other
medical or dental care the child may need. Make sure the child receives the checkups and
any follow-up recommendations in a timely manner.
