Implement the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Under the ACA, Texas has extended new coverage options to hundreds of thousands of previously uninsured or under-insured Texans. The ACA also put in place much-needed changes in the health care industry, including providing no-cost preventive care, ending discrimination against children and adults with pre-existing conditions and eliminating caps on health coverage. We continue to work with statewide coalition partners to ensure Texas fully implements ACA provisions to close our health care coverage gap and expand Medicaid.
