McAllen is the largest city in Hidalgo County, Texas, United States. It is located at the southern tip of Texas in an area known as the Rio Grande Valley and is part of the American Southwest. Its southern boundary is located about five miles from the U.S.-Mexico border and the Mexican city of Reynosa, the Rio Grande and about 70 mi (112.7 km) west of South Padre Island and the Gulf of Mexico. The 2010 census put the city's population at 129,877 and the McAllen Edinburg Mission metropolitan area at 774,769. The Reynosa-McAllen Metropolitan Area counts with a population of nearly 1.7 million. The city's sharp increase in annual Medicare billing, from a national average in 1992 to one of the nation's highest in 2006, has attracted scrutiny.
