About Us

Driscoll Health Plan is a non-profit, community-based health insurance plan offering health care coverage to the communities of South Texas. Our insurance products include STAR Medicaid, STAR Kids, CHIP and CHIP Perinatal.

Driscoll Health Plan was originally developed and funded through the Driscoll Foundation and licensed by the Texas Department of Insurance as a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) in 1998.

Driscoll Health Plan is affiliated with Driscoll Children’s Hospital which has been taking care of kids and their families in South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley for more than 60 years. We offer health care services at Driscoll Children’s specialty centers and clinics in McAllen, Harlingen, Brownsville, Laredo, Rio Grande City, Eagle Pass, Edinburg, Victoria and Weslaco.

 Mission: “Improving lives through quality health care.”

Vision: “Be the innovative leader in the delivery of healthcare.”

Did You Know?

As of 2017*, Texas had the most children without insurance in the United States – 4.8 million children did not have health care coverage. Simple annual checkups can easily prevent children and adults from getting more serious medical conditions and higher expenses down the road. Now, more than ever, Driscoll Health Plan is helping to grow healthier South Texans by providing new, affordable, quality health insurance options for you and your entire family.
