The numbers from 2016 to 2017 are the most comprehensive look yet at how Medicaid coverage has impacted the health care landscape in Texas.
The numbers from 2018 are the latest available and are more comprehensive than the ones released in 2017, but they are not a perfect indicator of how Medicaid has affected the state’s health care system.
They also are not the first to look at Medicaid spending in Texas and how that has impacted Texans’ health care.
They were first published last year by the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The data shows that Medicaid has helped reduce hospital stays, reduce hospitalizations and preventative care visits, but also increased hospital costs and the number of uninsured Texans.
The Texas Health Insurance Association, which represents the state health insurance exchanges, said in a news release that “Texas Medicaid spending has fallen from $1.6 billion in 2016 to $841 million in 2018, a 34 percent reduction.”
The report also found that Texas has seen a 26 percent increase in the number and share of Texans who have private insurance, compared with 2015.
It found that the share of Medicaid-eligible Texans who do not have health insurance rose from 9 percent in 2015 to 15 percent in 2017.
In all, the Kaiser report found that, from 2016-18, Texas spent $1,096 billion on health care, up from $914 billion in 2015-16.
Medicaid, the state-run insurance program for the poor, covers the majority of the costs.
The state also spent $2.2 billion on Medicaid for the first time, a 25 percent increase from the previous year.
The increase is largely due to the rise in uninsured Texans and the expansion of Medicaid.
The report did not look at any additional spending from the expansion, which is expected to begin next year.
Texas spent $3.6 trillion in the first five years of the Medicaid expansion, up 30 percent from 2015-17, but the report did find that the increase in spending on Medicaid had slowed from a growth rate of 24 percent from 2013-14 to 17 percent from 2017-18.
