Number of Texans covered by Medicaid
Texas Medicaid provides affordable, quality health insurance for more than 4 million of Texas’ most vulnerable individuals - including children, mothers, elderly Texans and individuals with disabilities. Texas Medicaid connects people with the health care, doctors, and medications they need to get healthy and stay healthy. Medicaid goes beyond just providing health coverage for vulnerable Texans - it also helps individuals get jobs, find secure housing, coordinate transportation to doctor’s visits, and helps older Texans and individuals with disabilities live independently in their communities. Across the board, Medicaid is strengthening local communities and ensuring a brighter future for Texas.
