TEXAS

Overview

Texas has enacted legislation to explore the desirability and feasibility of deploying an all-payer claims database (APCD) in the state. In addition to exploring payment-for-performance models in tandem with its existing rate review processes, Texas maintains a number of consumer resources for finding and using health insurance.

In the 2019 legislative session, the legislature is exploring several options for Medicaid reform, including Medicaid expansion.
