IHCQE 2014 – Expanded Access to CareHigh Level Questions

  • How can Texas provide better access to care for low income individuals who are currently ineligible for Medicaid and lack access to affordable private health coverage?
  • Can and should we increase access through existing initiatives such as the 1115 Medicaid Transformation waiver, through expansion of the traditional Medicaid program, or by subsidizing and promoting access to affordable private health insurance coverage?
  • As access to care improves, how does the state promote the use of higher value services?
  • Increased health insurance does not necessarily mean access to care.
slide8

IHCQE 2014 – Expanded Access to CareUninsured in Texas (Prior to Exchange)

  • According to data from the Texas Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS, 2012), about 36% of the state’s non elderly adult population (age 18 – 64) are uninsured.

    • 46% of individuals age 18 – 29 years
    • 64% in household with under $25,000 annual income
    • Could not see doctor due to cost in past 12 months
    • Overall: Insured = 13%, Uninsured = 42.5%
    • Less than $25k income: Insured = 31%, Uninsured = 47%
    • Routine check-up in past year
    • Overall: Insured = 71%, Uninsured = 38%
    • Less than $25k income: Insured = 69%, Uninsured = 35%
    • 58% of uninsured, non elderly adults in Texas are employed; 8% are out of work less than 1 year; 15% are homemakers

IHCQE 2014 – Expanded Access to CareOregon Medicaid Expansion Study

  • In 2008, Oregon initiated a limited expansion of its Medicaid program by drawing names by lottery
  • Provided an opportunity to study the effects of Medicaid coverage using a randomized controlled design
  • Medicaid coverage increased emergency department utilization by 40% relative to the control group
  • Increased emergency department utilization was noted across a broad range of types of visits, conditions, and subgroups, including for conditions that may be most appropriately treated in a primary care setting
  • Utilization did not increase for conditions classified as emergent

slide19

IHCQE 2014 – Expanded Access to CarePROPOSED Guiding Principles

  • Strong public health, community, and primary care systems as the backbone of a Texas Solution for expanding appropriate quality access to health care
  • Promote prevention, wellness, self-management of chronic disease, and personal responsibility; stewardship of state taxpayer dollars; the integration and coordination of health care services; a sustainable safety net; and private health plan options that can bridge existing gaps in coverage
  • Address technical and infrastructure barriers impacting telemedicine and the establishment of patient centered medical/health homes
slide20

IHCQE 2014 – Expanded Access to CarePROPOSED GUIDING PRINCIPLES

  • Maximize the use of federal resources to support healthcare transformation and expanded access to care, particularly the 1115 Medicaid Transformation Waiver
  • Develop solutions that fit within the social, economic, and political framework of the state
  • Progress toward this vision begins with increased understanding of who lacks insurance, why they lack insurance, how the uninsured currently access health care services, the impact that lack of insurance has on the costs of health care and what impact the state's Medicaid Transformation Waiver is having on access to care and patient outcomes
