Most laws and regulations related to health care are enforced at the state level, including access to medical marijuana, although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) changed the way insurance is accessed in all states. Texas has mandatory reporting requirements for gunshot wounds and certain communicable diseases, while state law permits the withholding of food or medical care for individuals suffering from a terminal illness and wishing to end their lives. Other state health care laws address matters such as access to reproductive health services and power of attorney. Click on a link below to learn more about Texas health care laws.
