Overview The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is an agency within the Texas Health and Human Services System. In September 2016, Texas began transforming how it delivers health and human services to qualified Texans, with a goal of making the Health and Human Services System more efficient and effective. Sept. 1, 2017, marked another major milestone in this transformation. The new accountable, restructured system: – Makes it easier for people to find out about the services or benefits for which they may qualify. – Better integrates programs by removing bureaucratic silos and grouping similar programs and services together. – Creates clear lines of accountability within the organization. – Includes well-defined and objective performance metrics for all organizational areas. Texas Health and Human Services now consists of 2 agencies: the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). HHS is headquartered in Austin, TX. Dr. Courtney Phillips began serving as the system’s Executive Commissioner in October 2018.
