The focus for most children is on preventive care, like well-checks and immunizations, to ensure a bright future for these young Texans.
Medicaid coverage for these Texans includes essential long-term care and support that helps them remain independent in their community and homes.
Texas Medicaid ensures seamless health care tailored to meet the complex needs of these children, including access to trauma specialists and other doctors with special training.
More expectant moms are receiving prenatal care and education — and receiving it earlier, helping Texas mothers deliver healthier babies.
Through Texas Medicaid, older and disabled Texans have better care coordination and increased access to home health care, so they can remain in the community and live independently at home instead of an institution or nursing home.
1 in 4 Texas Medicare recipients also depend on Medicaid for long-term care - services not covered by Medicare. These vital services allow older Texans to receive care in their own homes and communities.
Medicaid improves our communities by helping Texans get healthy and stay healthy - ensuring they can be active members of their local community.
Nursing home care is expensive. Without Medicaid, reliable, long-term care would simply be out of reach and too expensive for many older Texans.
Their Medicaid goes beyond traditional medical needs, such as transportation assistance, community outreach, and finding meaningful jobs.
Healthy children can focus more on school, adults have a better chance finding and keeping quality jobs, and older Texans can receive care they need to help them live independently in the comfort of their home.
