Health Reform Across the States
The Urban Institute - Matthew Buettgens, John Holahan, and Caitlin Carroll

April, 2011

Urban Institute researchers use the Health Insurance Policy Simulation Model to predict results as if the Affordable Care Act were fully implemented in 2011. They contrast these results with the pre-reform baseline estimates for the same year. They find that uninsurance rates among the nonelderly would decrease in all 50 states and in Washington, D.C., ranging from 1 percentage point in Massachusetts to 17 percentage points in Texas. There would be $82.3 billion in new federal Medicaid and exchange subsidies flowing to the states, led by California ($9.5 billion), Texas ($8.2 billion), and Florida ($6.7 billion).

We Love Animals

Lou Bailey, Director of Alumni Relations and Planned Giving at St. Stephen's Episcopal School in Austin, sent us this adorable photo of her rat terrier, Roo...complete with reading glasses! http://www.sstx.org


Dixie Neeley, the Founder of the Triple Me Mac Equine Sanctuary in Bulverde, rescued this off-the-track thoroughbred from a boys ranch. Malt & Jam was starved and had a broken shoulder. The picture was taken last summer - he is totally healed and healthy! http://www.triplememac.org



The International Exotic Animal Sanctuary recently became home to two tiny American black bear cubs, one male and one female, who were found abandoned in their wild Alaska. These two were young, helpless, and unable to survive on their own. As such, they were transported to their new forever home in Texas. At IEAS, they will have 1.5 acres of forest, meadow, and grass to thrive in. With the help of Emotional Enrichment, they will learn to find security and trust in their new family. IEAS staff is eager and excited to make the lives of these cubs as amazing as possible, and they can't wait to watch them live like wild bears in a safe, caring environment!
