Healthcare Support

Below are documents highlighting organizations and reports that support coverage expansion in Texas. 

1. Cover Texas Now Letter to Governor Abbott and Commissioner Mattax

As Congress prepares to take up federal health care laws, the Cover Texas Now coalition submitted a detailed letter to Governor Abbott, and Texas Insurance and Health and Human Services Commissioners Mattax and Smith, urging them to voice support for policies that will create a more stable, affordable, and high-quality health care system that builds on recent progress, while making improvements.

Cover Texas Now is opposed to:

  • Congress repealing the ACA without simultaneously passing a replacement plan that would ensure no loss of coverage or loss of consumer protections, and
  • Congress fundamentally altering and reducing federal funding for Medicaid, either through a block grant or per capita cap.
