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.
Medicaid health plans also provide services that go beyond the walls of a doctor’s office, including helping with transportation, coordinating meals, and navigating challenges at school and work. They invest in local communities to ensure Texans have the care and services they need to lead healthy, active lives and live independently in their own homes and communities.
