In Texas, the Medicaid program is administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. While there are 42 individual Medicaid programs in Texas, the best known programs are the ones that provide long term care benefits to qualified elders: nursing home Medicaid and Community Based Alternatives. To qualify for either program, a person must meet nationality and residence requirements, as well as defined income and resource (asset) limitations.
