Data from the states which have expanded Medicaid shows that if Texas expanded Medicaid, it would:

- See savings related to previously eligible Medicaid beneficiaries now eligible for the new adult group under expansion
- See revenue gains related to existing insurer or provider taxes
There is no doubt that a Medicaid Expansion is wise stewardship of the Texas state budget.
