Medicaid Expansion and the Coverage Gap

Expanding coverage for low-income adult Texans would improve health coverage and access to care in Texas…but did you know it would also save your county money? This searchable database from the Center for Public Policy Priorities allows you to see how increased federal funding for low-income health insurance would save your county tax dollars that currently go for uncompensated care, care for people in jail, and others. The tool takes into account estimates from a variety of public and private sources, ensuring that you aren’t just getting the opinion of one group.
