2015 Legislative Policy Priorities

The Alliance and its member organizations are working in close collaboration with One Voice Texas, our partner organization in advocacy and community engagement, on the comprehensive list of issues and concerns important to our region. More specifically, HCHA is actively communicating with our elected officials on the following high-level policy priorities.

Improve access to healthcare through innovative funding and coverage initiatives by:

  • Supporting efforts to provide health coverage to the over one million uninsured Harris County residents who could be eligible for coverage under federal law,
  • Defend federal and state spending on Medicaid/CHIP for currently covered populations (including extending CHIP Reauthorization at the federal level), and
  • Encourage continuation of the Texas Medicaid 1115 Transformation and Quality Improvement Waiver.
