The Vista360health Health Plan and Vista4me App

 

Vista360health is an Austin-born HMO health plan bringing an alternative to health coverage for Central Texans. Vista360health was established in 1994 recognizing that many Medicaid moms and babies got lost in the healthcare maze. Vista360health launched the first demonstration project for the State of Texas to better manage these patients.

Hurricane Harvey Resources, Disaster Relief and Donation Information

Texas has always been a huge melting pot of cultures. Sometimes we all don’t see eye to eye but when disaster strikes Texans come together to help their communities. Currently 50 counties in Texas have been affected by Harvey; I’m in one of them. The storm in Austin was so harsh it uprooted a huge Pecan tree in my neighborhood straight out of the ground, roots and all. Houston and the Gulf coast have it much worse than us that are inland in Texas. Unfortunately the rain will continue on regions already flooded and affected.
