Interactive: Financing Health Care Transformation Across Texas

Through a transformational Medicaid waiver, Texas plans to launch 1,100 experimental projects over the next two years to change the way health care is delivered to the state’s poor and uninsured. This interactive shows the regional distribution of $3.2 billion for projects the federal government approved in May and the percent of each region that is uninsured. Underneath the map is a detailed description of the approved projects from the Health and Human Services Commission.

To receive the federal dollars, health care providers across 20 Texas regions must start the projects using local financing and meet some performance benchmarks. That has presented a particular challenge to the state’s poorest regions, where the rates of uninsured are higher and more people receive Medicaid benefits.
