An Attorney Charges TennCare With Shortchanging Children
An attorney with the Tennessee Justice Center says she is painfully aware of TennCare shortchanging more than a third of the children in the state. Michele Johnson filed the suit that a federal appeals court threw out. The 15-year-old legal agreement mandating regular medical and dental care for 750-thousand children on TennCare was killed. The opinion of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit was to void the deal and federal requirements governing the state's version of Medicaid. The consent decree came from the 1998 lawsuit alleging that children were not getting regular checkups. A federal judge ruled last year that the state was in compliance and dismissed the case. (bg)
