Our agency champions health care access for all individuals with disabilities. We believe that people with disabilities should have access to health care coverage and services that meet their unique needs and that all services should be readily available, affordable, accessible and accountable.

To achieve these goals, Disability Rights Texas’s efforts include individual casework, training programs and advocacy for public policies that support access to quality health care and services for individuals with disabilities.
