Texas Health Care

State lawmakers are working to get two health care bills passed that would expand TeleHealth, TeleMedicine and broadband access across the state of Texas.

House Bill (HB) 4 and House Bill 5 have passed through the House and are now pending in Senate committees. If the Senate passes both HB 4 and HB 5, the bills will then go to the Governor for his consideration.

HB 4 provides delivery of health care services under Medicaid and other public benefit programs by using telecommunication or information technology.

HB 5 provides expansion of broadband services to certain areas.

TeleHealth is also happening at TTUHSC and at Texas Tech Physicians in Amarillo.

HB 4 will be paid for by funds from Texas Health and Human Services from the upcoming biennial budget,
