Abbott Signs House Bill 827, Limiting Insulin Copays in Texas to $25 For Insured Patients

The press conference also focused on the Doctors Hospital at Renaissance officially be designated as a Level 1 Trauma Center.

SAN ANTONIO — Governor Greg Abbott delivered remarks at the Edinburg Conference Center Wednesday.

The press conference focused on the Doctors Hospital at Renaissance officially be designated as a Level 1 Trauma Center. 

“Today is the day, today they are now making history with the official designation of a Level 1 Trauma Center in the Rio Grande Valley of the great state of Texas,” Gov. Abbott said. 

The closest trauma center was in San Antonio — which is a more than 200 miles distance.

“Today is a day of remarkable achievement for the Rio Grand Valley, for DHR,” the Governor said.

Governor Abbott also signed Senate Bill 827, which limits the co-pays to $25 for each insulin prescription per month for insured Texans on state-regulated health plans.

“It’s always so rewarding when you have a goal you want to achieve, you put the effort in to achieve that goal and then you ultimately achieve it,” Gov. Abbott said. 

The press conference started at 3 p.m.
