Today’s Texas Medicaid health plans provide more than health care coverage — they connect Texans to the personalized care and support they need to stay healthy and live the fullest lives possible.
They provide one-on-one support and walk families through every step of the complicated and overwhelming health care system. Texas Medicaid managed care plans’ 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 billion.
Texas has lead the national in modernizing Medicaid by transforming an outdated system into a modern, patient-centered Medicaid health insurance program. The results have been remarkable. Here are a few ways Medicaid keeps Texans healthy.
Access to care is robust, with more than 80% of Texas doctors participating in Medicaid health insurance networks.
Medicaid health insurance providers walk Texans through every step of the health care system, from coordinating appointments, seeing the right doctors or specialists, arranging transportation, handling medical records, monitoring medications and treatments, and more.
The modern Texas Medicaid program focuses on preventive health care and chronic disease management, using wellness visits and screenings to keep Texans healthy and avoid or manage common illnesses.
