Texas Left Me Out: The Launch of a New Campaign
Texans Care for Children

February, 2014

Today is the official launch the  Texas Left Me Out campaign, a campaign in English and  Spanish to collect stories from Texans left in the coverage gap and connect them with available health care options and efforts to fix the Texas coverage gap.
What is the coverage gap?
Under the nation's health law, every person was supposed to have a way to get health care coverage. People with low incomes would get Medicaid as long as their state leaders agreed. But since Texas said no, now many Texans are left in a coverage gap. The coverage gap includes veterans and their spouses, as well as workers in construction, child care, health care, retail, restaurant, and service industries.
Here are a few ways you can stay involved and participate in the Texas Left Me Out campaign launch:
  • At 10AM today we will by kicking off the Texas Left Me Out campaign with a press conference at the Capitol. You can watch the conference live here:  http://www.house.state.tx.us/video-audio/
  • We will be posting information about the Texas Left Me Out campaign throughout the day on our  Facebook and  Twitter pages. Follow us, and please feel free to share and reuse what we post.
  • If you, or someone, you know is in the coverage gap, you can share your stories and get connected to Texas Left Me Out in three different ways:
