* Federal officials calculated the cost of military health care spending in Texas by multiplying the average amount spent per recipient by the total number of recipients in Texas.
** No county can be assigned a county to the noncatchment areas because these are generally retirees who will go to the medical center in their area. Western Texas is that area of Texas closer to El Paso and everything else is Eastern Texas.
