CHIP medicaid problems in Texas

First I will tell you all that my son is special needs with a visual and neurological disorder, and must take medication.... 5 months ago in oct, I refiled for my son's CHIP insurance. My application sat in "processing pending" for 3 months. Finally someone was assigned his case and he was again approved. However, for another 2 months I have been trying to enroll and pay the fee, but CHIP says Texas has not sent them the info. Texas (HHSC) says they sent it and he approved so they can't do anything else. Both sides have assigned "special escalations" to the case. And i have been assigned an ombudsman. All to no avail. In the mean time I can't afford his medication and his specialty doctors won't take any other affordable to me insurance. I don't know what else to do. Anyone else ever have a situation like this? Is there anything else I can do?
