Please urge the Senate Health and Human Services Committee to save the children’s health coverage bill (CSHB 342) by attaching it to another bill moving through the Legislature!
Texas has the nation’s highest uninsured rate for kids and it is getting worse.
- When kids get enrolled in Medicaid, they would get six uninterrupted months of coverage at a time.
- The current process gives children month to month coverage for half the year and asks parents to submit paperwork up to 5 times a year - per child, greatly increasing the chance that eligible children will lose coverage.
- This bill would keep more kids insured and healthy.
- It would cut down on costly paperwork burdening the state, parents and doctors.
