A VISION FOR CHANGE:
POLICY SOLUTIONS FOR INCREASING HEALTH COVERAGE IN TEXAS


      Texas Health Institute undertook a study to develop feasible public
      policy solutions that, when combined together, could cut the number of
      Texans without health coverage almost in half. Using the most
      recent estimates of uninsured per county, the study also examines
      the corresponding economic and fiscal impact of increasing the number
      of Texans with health coverage. The report, “A Vision for Change:
      Policy Solutions for Increasing Health Coverage in Texas
”,provides
      policymakers and stake-holders at all levels a selection of cost-effective
      and workable policy solutionsto deploy when solving the issue facing more
      than 5.6 million Texans.
