Walker County Indigent Care Program
The Walker County Hospital District is proposing to change the eligibility standards for basic health services provided through the District’s indigent care program from one hundred percent (100%) of the Federal poverty level to fifty percent (50%) of the Federal poverty level. The District is proposing to make the changes effective December 1, 2020.
As required by Texas state law, the District is required to provide a public notice of the change ninety (90) days prior to the date the change would go into effect. The District is also required to conduct a public hearing not less than thirty (30) days before the changes would go into effect. Members of the public may testify at this public hearing. The District is scheduling the hearing to take place at its public office at 06:00 PM on September 9, 2020 at 1300 11th Street, Suite 515, Huntsville, TX 77340.
In the event that it is not permissible for the District to hold the public hearing on this date due to state or local order related to the coronavirus, the District will hold a meeting by teleconference and will provide information on its website regarding how to participate.
