The mission of the Health and Human Services Commission is to provide leadership and direction and foster the spirit of innovation needed to achieve an efficient and effective health and human services system for Texans.
Through the Texas Health and Human Services Commission's strategic direction and leadership, we envision a coordinated health and human services system that ensures quality services, cost-effective service delivery, and careful stewardship of public resources. HHSC will direct and support collaboration and partnerships of agencies with consumers and local communities to establish systems that support individual choices and personal responsibility.
Originally created in 1991 to provide strategic leadership to all HHS agencies, HHSC now oversees the operations and policies of the entire HHS System in Texas, and HHSC directly operates the Medicaid program, CHIP, and several family support programs. HHSC also operates a consolidated eligibility determination function for several major HHS programs. HHSC provides consolidated or coordinated administrative support for all HHS agencies. Thus, HHSC has responsibilities as a leadership, operational, and oversight agency. The agency is accountable to Texans for ensuring that the HHS System provides quality services in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
