Medicaid managed care is safety net health insurance that protects Texans who need it most, including children, mothers, grandparents, and Texans with disabilities. Texas partners with private health insurers to provide more than 5 million Texans with the personalized care and coordination they need to get healthy, stay healthy, and live independently in their own homes and communities.
But Texas Medicaid is more than health care coverage—it also includes services that go beyond the walls of a doctor’s office, including arranging transportation, coordinating meals, and navigating challenges with school and work.
Managed care’s focus on prevention, wellness, and care coordination has translated into increased access and better outcomes for Texas patients and lower costs for Texas taxpayers.
Texas has saved more than $5 billion through the use of Medicaid managed care since 2009.
