Stakeholder Dialogue on Diabetes

The effect from diabetes on urban communities is substantial, and diabetes is a significant driver of chronic disease and health care costs in Houston and Harris County. One in ten people in Houston and Harris County have diabetes, thousands more are at risk,1 and by 2020, it is predicted to impact close to 600,000 Houstonians.2 The American Diabetes Association estimates that annual per capita health care expenditure is 2.3 times higher for people with diabetes than for those without diabetes.3

We need to take action now.  Join us for a Community Dialogue on May 14.

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.
