This first of a two-volume set in a new series contains the proceedings of a conference held in 2002 at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, in which options and issues regarding expanding insurance coverage for Texans were presented. The book includes keynote presentations by Raymond Scheppach, Executive Director of the National Governors Association, who discussed Medicaid reform in the context of the growing fiscal crisis facing state governments; and Mark Gibson, health policy advisor to Oregon's governor, who discussed health care reform and expansion in Oregon. Other topics include options for Medicaid expansion in Texas; the fiscal and political issues facing state government with respect to health and human services; and legislative, business, professional and advocacy perspectives on some of the alternatives. The book also includes a synopsis of break-out sessions on special issues relating to private health insurance regulation, the high-risk pool, buy-in and hybrid options between Medicaid and private health insurance, and health coverage for Hispanics. (The second volume of this set provides Conference Background Papers.)
