A large majority of Texans say it’s very important for candidates to address issues that make health care more affordable, and more than half say state lawmakers should increase state spending on health care.

New analysis: Record enrollment in 2022 Affordable Care Act health insurance across Texas fueled by big increase in federal financial assistance
A record number of Texans enrolled in Affordable Care Act (ACA) health insurance for 2022 thanks in large part to the greatest amount of federal financial assistance available to date to help pay for monthly premiums. That’s one of the findings of an Episcopal Health Foundation (EHF) analysis of new ACA health insurance enrollment data released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services combined with data from previous ACA enrollment periods.
More than 950,000 newly-eligible adults would enroll in health insurance under Medicaid expansion in Texas, bringing a projected $5.4 billion in federal dollars to the state. That’s according to a new study by researchers at the Bush School of Government & Public Service at Texas A&M University.
