But, according to their governor Rick Perry and Canadian born senator Ted Cruz, Texans don’t want healthcare, right?
New numbers on ACA enrollment are out, and nearly half a million Texans have applied for coverage through the federal exchange. The latest numbers from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show us that:
457,382 total Texans who applied for coverage through completed applications
390,658 Texans have been found eligible to enroll in a marketplace plan
Over 47,000 have been found eligible to enroll in the state’s existing Medicaid or CHIP plans
Ed Espinoza, Executive Director of Progress Texas, released the following statement:
Twelve weeks of ACA has done more to help Texans without health care than Rick Perry has done in twelve years as Governor.
