Luckily there are options for coverage outside of employer provided benefits and state programs. We'll show you a few ways you can find health care that you can afford.
Texas health care costs and coverage
Most families in Texas receive benefits from their employers or from state provided programs. Here are a few facts to consider when it comes to coverage in Texas:
