The Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP) held a media call on September 16th
to discuss the data released by U.S. Census Bureau’s Community Population Survey (CPS) and the American Community Survey (ACS) on September 17th and 19th
. According to the advocates’ data analysis, Texas has increased the number of children enrolled in health insurance programs, but continues to have the highest number of uninsured children and children who are eligible but not enrolled in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Texans Care for Children highlights in their State of the Children
blog that Texas children will have more opportunities to access coverage
through the Federally Facilitated Marketplace and other health insurance reforms regulating private insurers.
