AUSTIN – Gov. Greg Abbott announced that the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) secured $984 million in annual funding to support private hospitals throughout the state.
“Texans across the state will now have greater access to the healthcare services they need with this additional annual funding,” Abbott said. “I applaud the Texas Health and Human Services Commission for their tireless work in securing approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for Texas’ plan to fund hundreds of private hospitals, providing crucial care to millions of Texans.
Working together, we will ensure Texans in rural and border communities have the healthcare access they need and deserve for generations to come,” he added.
