CPPP has compiled data for all 254 Texas counties to illustrate the expected impact of Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation on uninsured numbers and rates by county. The sources are drawn from respected and reliable experts including the US Bureau of the Census, Texas demographers Michael Cline, Ph.D. and Steve Murdock, Ph.D., and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

The county data sheets can help you understand what kind of uninsured challenge your county has today, and how that could improve under the ACA in the next several years. The sheets compare what uninsured rates would look like with and without the ACA’s Medicaid expansion. Also, the sheets include an estimate of how much additional net federal health care revenue would come to your county every year on average from 2014 to 2017.
