By caring for those who need it most, Central Health improves the health of our community. We are the local public entity that connects low-income, uninsured Travis County residents to high quality, cost effective health care.
Central Health works through a network of health care partners and community members to connect uninsured, underinsured, and low-income residents with high-quality, cost-effective health care. We use local and federal funds to create access to and transform safety net health care services through:
- The Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin
- The Community Care Collaborative’s (CCC) integrated healthcare delivery system for low-income residents
- Many health care projects organized under Texas’ 1115 Waiver and as the anchor for Regional Health Partnership 7 (RHP7)
- CommUnityCare, the largest provider of safety-net primary care services in Travis County
- Sendero Health Plans’ STAR and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) programs and IdealCare health insurance plan
- Integral Care clinics for residents with developmental disabilities, mental issues, and substance abuse problems
- Collection and analysis of our region’s health data through the Integrated Care Collaborative
By investing in these programs, Central Health is improving the safety-net healthcare system, economy, and overall standard of living in our community.
Central Health is a separate political subdivision of the State of Texas and is not a part of Travis County Government. The boundaries of our healthcare service area are contiguous with Travis County.
