Today’s Texas Medicaid covers medical expenses, coordinates complex medical care, and helps Texans stay as healthy and active as possible — all while providing caring, compassionate one-on-one support.
Medicaid is safety net health insurance that is there for the Texans that need it most, including Texas children, mothers, grandparents and people with disabilities. It helps provide for everything from routine checkups and heart surgeries to home health and at-home nursing care.
The focus on prevention, wellness, and care coordination — getting Texans the care they need to get healthy, stay healthy, and live in their communities — has translated into better care and lower costs. As a result, millions of Texans — including children and pregnant moms — have seen improved outcomes, and Texas taxpayers have saved more than $5.3 billion. Today’s Texas Medicaid keeps Texans healthy, improves lives, and saves taxpayer money.
