  • Texas has the nation’s highest uninsured rate for kids and it is getting worse.
  • Kids who are currently eligible for Medicaid insurance would stay enrolled for 12 consecutive months.
  • The current process, asks parents to submit paperwork up to 5 times a year - per child, providing short time periods for a parent to respond and greatly increasing the chance that eligible children will lose coverage.
  • These bills would keep more kids insured and healthy.
  • It would cut down on costly paperwork burdening the state, parents and doctors.
