  • Medicaid Expansion in Texas: What's at Stake? - The Commonwealth Fund
    There is also evidence that in 2014 some Texans who were eligible for Medicaid before the ACA but had yet to sign up gained coverage as a result of the woodwork effect This led to a 5 percent increase in the state s Medicaid enrollment through 2015 even without expanded eligibility 4 Texas s decision not to expand Medicaid also affected the ability of low income adults to pay for and obtain care In the two expansion states we studied low income adults experienced major improvements in their ability to pay for needed prescriptions and afford their medical bills Exhibits 2 and 3 In the expansion states people with chronic diseases like diabetes depression and asthma reported that they were much more likely to obtain regular care for those conditions in 2014 compared with people in Texas 5 Overall these results are consistent with findings from other studies 6 suggesting that Texas s decision not to expand Medicaid is leaving millions of poor adults worse off than in comparison states in terms of coverage household finances and ability to obtain necessary medical care OTHER ENROLLMENT CHALLENGES IN TEXAS In addition to its decision not to expand Medicaid Texas has made it more difficult than other states for people who are eligible for coverage under the ACA to actually enroll Many states have effectively used health insurance navigators and other types of assistance to inform and help eligible people sign up for coverage but Texas opted not to create an in person assistance program and passed laws that effectively limited the ability of community organizations to help consumers enroll in insurance Compared with other states Texas has had substantially lower rates of awareness of the ACA lower application rates and a reduced likelihood that low income people who did apply received assistance with their applications Exhibit 4 7 There is also evidence that lack of information about the ACA s coverage options is a particular challenge among Latinos relative to other racial and ethnic groups Latinos comprise nearly half of Texas s low income population 8 FUTURE PROSPECTS Clearly there is a great need for expanded health care coverage and access in Texas In our survey we found that more than half of low income Texans had at least one chronic medical problem Yet nearly one third had put off necessary medical care in the past year because they could not afford it and only 51 percent had a primary care physician While Texas has not yet chosen to expand Medicaid the Supreme Court ruling and guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services leave the door open indefinitely for any state to expand Generous federal funding remains available if Texas were to expand in 2016 100 percent of the costs of newly eligible adults would be covered by the federal government After 2020 the federal government will still pay for 90 percent of these costs a much higher percentage than the 57 percent it currently pays towards Texas s
