What is Texas Known For?
With just over 30 million residents as of 20231, Texas is the second most populous state in the country, with 85% of those individuals living in three of the largest cities: Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Each city boasts over a million residents, followed closely by El Paso, Fort Worth, and the state capitol, Austin. The Alamo, barbeque, and oil may be the first things that come to mind about Texas. And, if not, did you know Texas is just as diverse as its population?
Native American, Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo-American cultures have shaped Texas since before its official admittance as a state in 1845. The state’s rich cultural diversity reflects in everything from its Tex-Mex and barbecue cuisine to its music, which ranges from country and western to blues and rock & roll.
With 37 football colleges, Texas ranks third in the nation, and college football is an enduringly popular sport. Top college football schools in the state include the University of Texas, Texas A&M University, and Texas Tech. The Dallas Cowboys (football), Houston Astros (baseball), and San Antonio Spurs (basketball) are three of Texas' most successful professional sports franchises.
From premiere theme parks, historic sites, and the expansive Texas topography: from the flat plains of Amarillo to the Gulf of Mexico coastline, Texas offers a unique variety of adventures for every visitor to The Lone Star State.

Rehab insurance coverage may include specialist services, incorporating detoxification, behavioral therapy, medication-assisted treatment, inpatient and outpatient therapies, and other types of care.

In researching rehabilitation services, contacting your insurance company is crucial to learn about your policy coverage, deductibles, premiums, and any other potential out-of-pocket costs. During your research, it may be beneficial to speak to hospitals and rehabilitation facilities to find the most affordable option. Call us at 866-461-3339 and we can help you verify in-network facilities and the treatments covered by your insurance.
