Our agency champions healthcare access for all individuals with disabilities. We believe that people with disabilities should have access to healthcare 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 healthcare and services for individuals with disabilities.
