Two changes in mental health screening benefits are available through Texas Health Steps beginning July 1, 2018. 

Effective April 2, opioid cough and cold medications will not be covered by Texas Medicaid fee-for-service for individuals 17 years and younger. The new restriction is based on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recent decision to require safety labeling that limits the use of prescription cough cold medication containing codeine or hydrocodone to individuals 18 years and older.
