Texas Chapter Meeting - Uninsured in a Pandemic: Continuing the Fight for MedEx in TX
Thursday, October 21, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
Category: Events

For their fourth annual public health policy forum, the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) Texas Chapter and Texas Doctors for Social Responsibility (TDSR) invite you to join a timely conversation about the continued need for Medicaid expansion in Texas and how Texans of all backgrounds can play a role in this fight for increased access to health care coverage. While health coverage has always been a critical element of financial security and access to health care, Texas leaders’ failure to expand Medicaid could now have even more devastating effects on the health and financial well-being of many Texans.
Other states that have implemented Medicaid expansion have seen the benefits of this effective public policy tool, including greater access to care, more affordable care, and reduced medical debt. As one of the 12 states that has not implemented Medicaid expansion, Texas falls dangerously short in guaranteeing the well-being of every Texan, especially Texans of color. State action is needed to prevent Texans from falling through the cracks in the health care coverage gap during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which has only exacerbated lack of access to health insurance.
Please join us on Thursday, October 21st at 7:00 PM CT to discuss how Texans can work collectively to ensure health equity for every Texan.
