Aug 4th 2017 11:02 pm Response: #310225 Instead of making Texans stronger and healthier, the ironically-named "Healthy Texas Women" Program takes health care away from the people who need it most. Exporting it nationwide could have devastating effects. The state's own numbers show that approximately 30,000 fewer women have received birth control, cancer screenings, and other care as a result of this program. These policies are hardest on people who already face barriers to health care, especially young women, women of color, those who live in rural areas, and women with low incomes. If the rest of the nation goes the way of Texas, it would result in a public health crisis for millions of women. I urge the Trump administration to protect — not rip away — access to care.

Please help Medicaid patients keep their (sometimes few) options available. Thanks for listening.

Aug 4th 2017 10:49 pm Response: #310201 I strongly urge you to reject Texas’ § 1115(a) Medicaid demonstration application, “Healthy Texas Women” waiver and ensure that all Texans have the freedom to access health care with their chosen provider, regardless of where their insurance comes from. The state of Texas has high rates of unintended pregnancy, maternal morbidity, and low birth weight infants, among other reproductive health issues; as written, the proposed changes would do nothing to alleviate these very real problems. We know what improves reproductive health outcomes – access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including contraception. In fact, these changes would deliberately limit access to care and bypass what we as medical professionals know improves reproductive health. I urge CMS to reject these proposed changes and ensure that all Texans have the freedom to choose their own health care provider, without political interference.
