Read All About It! Health Holiday News
Happy Health Care, Merry Medicaid, and No Medicaid Misers in the New Year!
As Washington looks at what to do about the fiscal cliff, one thing is clear: kids, families, and Texans who benefit from Medicaid health care need protection right now!
Our friends at
have a way you can help out this holiday season, all from the comfort of your home computer.
Protect care for kids, seniors, and people with disabilities by telling members of Congress on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr that there should be #NoMedicaidMisers this holiday season!
To celebrate #MerryMedicaid and submit your own health care for the holidays ideas, visit:
Don't Buy the Hype! Texas WILL have an Exchange and CAN Extend Medicaid
Did you know Texas will, in fact, have a health insurance exchange where people can shop for and purchase health care they need online?
Did you know that the Texas Legislature will decide whether Texas will make Medicaid available to over 1 million uninsured Texans who qualify for it under health reform?
Next year is filled with big decisions, and our campaign, along with families across Texas, need your energy, your voice, and your passion in 2013. Here are two things you can do right now:
- Say you'll join us March 5 for our Day at the Capitol as hundreds of Texans from across the state let lawmakers know "Texas Medicaid matters!"
- Download our new "Getting Leaders to Call Upon Leaders" toolkitto help educate and mobilize your community or county in ways that will build a chorus of voices across Texas calling on state officials to accept a Medicaid solution for Texans. Sign on to download a free copy of the county/local mobilization toolkit!
