Amerigroup Texas helps improve health care access and quality for over 1 million Texans. We develop innovative programs and services that treat people when they are sick, help them stay healthy, and promote healthier communities. We assure consumers of care that is accessible, accountable, comprehensive, integrated, and centered on people.

We collaborate with community organizations to help people become active participants in their health care. Our programs empower people to choose and sustain a healthy lifestyle. We are passionate about making health care simpler for Texans, and we have spent more than 20 years building relationships with providers, advocates, and organizations who share our commitment to addressing health disparities and improving outcomes.
