Texas Health and Human Services Commission chief Tom Suehs presented lawmakers with an estimate of $27 billion over a decade to expand health insurance coverage. It had been about $24 billion. Suehs testified that in the decade following 2014, about 2.1 million Texans will begin to be added to Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program. About $5.5 billion of the estimate involves paying doctors and other primary care providers more, so they'll see Medicaid and CHIP patients, the Dallas Morning News reports.
