About the Program
The County Indigent Health Care Program (CIHCP) is mandated by the Indigent Health Care and Treatment Act of 1985. According to Section 61 of the Texas Health and Safety Code, counties that are not served by a hospital district or a public hospital are responsible for administering an indigent health care program for indigent residents. The program covers only medically necessary services.
