The association representing more than 500 Texas nursing homes this week published its list of endorsements ahead of the March primaries.

The Texas Health Care Association threw its weight behind legislators that it believes will help improve the Medicaid program. The public payer winds up covering more than two-thirds of reimbursements for nursing home residents and the rate is among the lowest in the country.

“Long term care providers in the state of Texas have a vitally important role in caring for an ever increasing aging population with complex health conditions while facing ongoing challenges in securing a stable workforce,” said Kevin Warren, President and CEO of the THCA. “THCA member providers appreciate the legislative expertise and foundational knowledge these incumbent legislators bring to the health policy debate and we proudly endorse their re-elections to the state legislature.”

Without further ado, the endorsements:

  • Sen. Carlos Uresti, D-19, San Antonio
  • Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr.  D-27, Brownsville
  • Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-20, McAllen
  • Rep. Joe Straus, R-121, San Antonio
  • Rep. Travis Clardy, R-11, Nacogdoches
  • Rep. J.D. Sheffield, R-59, Gatesville
  • Rep. Cindy Burkett, R-113, Sunnyvale
  • Rep. Jason Villalba, R-114, Dallas
  • Rep. Sarah Davis, R-134, West University Place
  • Rep. Garnet Coleman, D-147, Houston
