Texas governor unwilling to maximize Medicaid

According to the chief executive officer of one of North Texas' largest health systems, failure to maximize the amount of federal funding that Texas is entitled to receive for Medicaid is not a good idea. The chief executive of Texas Health Resources in Arlington was responding to an inquiry in the Dallas Business Journal regarding Texas Gov. Rick Perry's latest strategy in his opposition to the Affordable Care Act. The governor has stated that he plans to ask for a federal waiver to reform Medicaid as he sees fit without expanding its eligibility.

Estate planning is essential for everyone, not just the rich

For many people in Texas and around the nation, the term "estate planning" conjures up visions of stately mansions and luxurious lifestyles. However, even though most people don't think of their property and possessions as being a part of their estate, they still need to consider what will happen if they are no longer able to handle the decisions of daily life.

Key documents to consider as part of sound estate planning

While planning for how one's wishes should be carried out after his or her passing may be a sensitive topic, it is important to address the issue before anything bad happens. Good planning can protect not only those Texas residents who fall ill or pass away, but it can protect their loved ones too. Estate planning can take some time, but it will be time well-spent when considering the costs of not having a plan at all, asserts an authority on the subject in a recent piece.

Texas veterans' benefits remain best in the nation

If there is any good news to come out of the Fort Hood shooting in 2009, it is that the victims' families will be extended veterans' benefits, as if their loved ones were killed in combat. The Texas Land Commissioner has ordered Veterans Land Board attorneys to work out the details. The Commissioner feels that the victims were casualties of war and that the rules should be changed to honor the sacrifices of the victims and their families.
