Expanding Health Care Programs Unpopular In Tennessee
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam says he won't pursue expanding the state's Medicaid program as a way to help cover the uninsured under the federal Affordable Care Act. He told a joint session of state lawmakers that he decided not to do that because he prefers a third option of using federal money to subsidize private insurance a proposal that the federal government hasn't accepted yet. Expanding TennCare, the state's Medicaid program might cover about 140 thousand of the states one million uninsured residents but will bring in nearly one and a half billion in federal money. Expanding state health care programs along with Obama care are unpopular in Tennessee. (bg)
