Report from the Hearing and Presentations on Expanding Medicaid

Friday, March 8, was was a double-feature for Capitol watchers and health care fans. It brought both a hearing in the Texas House about whether our state should accept federal funds to cover more families on Medicaid and a presentation by researchers on what that would mean across our state. Health policy expert Anne Dunkelberg has the recap from both events on our blog. We've also included a video with some of the most compelling testimony from the hearing.

Monthly Health Care Action Call
 
Noon - 1 p.m., Thursday, March March 28

RSVP to mimi@texaswellandhealthy.org for call details
 
Don't get frustrated that our state is behind the health care curve--get active! On this call, we'll share some of what's been accomplished already as friends of Texas Well and Healthy used our "Getting Leaders to Call Upon Leaders" toolkit to increase pressure from the local level on state leaders and get them to make the right choice, so more families have health coverage. We'll also debut a new tool available for local activism and let you know how to keep up the momentum!

Thank you for all you're doing this legislative session to make a difference!

So many of you helped make March 5th, Texas Medicaid Matters Day, a huge success. So many of you spoke up in ways that led this month's hearing on health care to happen. You helped get Medicaid for Texans the attention it needs by signing petitions, writing letters, making phone calls, tweeting and posting to Facebook. Please know we've noticed, and your elected leaders have noticed, too. You are making change happen--thank you!

 Stick with us, and let's make good, affordable health care for all Texans a reality together!
