United Health care Investment

United Health Care Community Plan of Texas has invested $1 million in Goodside Health. The investment is intended to support EPSDT wellness events in 200 schools across Texas. Known as Texas Health Steps, the EPSDT program aims to identify and treat childhood health issues early. Goodside Health will help students get the care they need, including insurance and visits to the doctor, for their physical, mental, and social well-being. These wellness events are open to all students, regardless of insurance status. United Health care is stepping forward.

The initiative highlights the importance of health care in schools, impacting students’ well-being, learning participation, and overall success. Brian White, CEO of Goodside Health, highlighted the negative impact of untreated health problems on academic performance and thanked for the partnership. Wellness events in 2024 and 2025 will help 200 K-12 students in Tarrant, Harris, and Dallas counties.

United Health care supports 4.7 million Texans with employer-sponsored, Medicare, and Medicaid plans. They have a large network of hospitals and care providers. Goodside Health focuses on pediatric care through physical, mental, and telehealth services, aiming to close gaps in children’s healthcare.

My thoughts

Being based out of Florida, this is great for Texas. I also currently, at the time of this writing, do not have children of my own, so I’m not sure if we have the same support. I believe that more healthcare providers can help schools with healthcare and sponsor programs to assist young people. Early diagnoses in grade school can help prevent and treat hereditary illnesses, allowing young people to have a healthier life. I would like to see this as a movement and trend for the states.
