83rd Legislative Session
As we prepare for the 83rd Legislative session, Integral Care is committed to educating the community, its leaders and lawmakers on the importance and value of the services it provides. Increasing the general understanding of Integral Care's services and resulting public benefits help officials make sound decisions on policies that impact us and those we serve.
Integral Care works collaboratively with the Texas Council of Community Centers to engage the community and stakeholders to participate in promoting access to high-quality, cost-effective community-based treatment and supports, but does not lobby in accordance with Texas law.
Integral Care works with the Texas Council of Community Centers to monitor and respond to the latest policy developments and ensure fair consideration of behavioral healthcare needs as well as champion legislation that effectively serves local communities. This is done by closely tracking legislation. As of today, the Texas Legislature has pre-filed 6221 bills. The Texas Council is currently tracking 389 of these bills. If you discover we missed a bill that should be included, please let us know. We greatly appreciate your feedback and suggestions for improvements.
