Today's texas medicaid keeps texans healthy, improves lives, and saves taxpayer money

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.

coordinates total medical care

Texas has lead the national in modernizing Medicaid by transforming an outdated system into a modern, patient-centered Medicaid health insurance program.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 a Network of  DOCTORS & Providers that Care

Access to care is robust, with more than 80% of Texas doctors participating in Medicaid health insurance networks.

coordinating care

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.

prevention and wellness

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.

Studies show Medicaid beneficiaries have better health outcomes for certain conditions than people without insurance:
  • Individuals with Medicaid coverage are 4 to 5 times more likely to have access to steady, reliable health care. 
  • Adults with Medicaid receive more preventive care & screenings - blood pressure checks, cholesterol monitoring & flu shots.
  • Children with Medicaid coverage are nearly 3 times more likely to receive preventive health care services like vital immunizations.  
Texas Medicaid's focus on prevention and wellness is keeping people healthy and out of the hospital. Hospital admissions are dramatically declining 25 to 35 percent for common illnesses like diabetes, asthma and pneumonia.
