Center aims to pressure Texas to expand Medicaid

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A Texas public policy institute hoping to pressure state lawmakers to reverse course and expand Medicaid has made it easier to see how many uninsured Texans would gain health coverage.

The Center for Public Policy Priorities in Austin released an online tool Wednesday that allows anyone to look up the potential economic benefits when a county's uninsured gained coverage through expanded Medicaid. Texas last year decided not to accept federal funding to expand the health program for the poor.

It's estimated that more than 1 million uninsured Texans who do not make enough money to qualify for subsidized health care through the marketplace would gain coverage.

Federal data released earlier this month showed that more than 733,000 Texans signed up for health insurance through the federal marketplace.
