Reforms give Tennessee more flexibility, helps invest in health of Tennesseans

NASHVILLE, TN – Following state officials releasing details of reforms to Tennessee’s Medicaid program, TennCare, Americans for Prosperity State Director Tori Venable issued the following statement:

“Giving our state more flexibility and reforming our Medicaid program from its current top-down system to a bottom-up system is the innovative and bold proposal our state needs. This proposal looks to save outside the traditional scope of Medicaid, like telemedicine and transition services for returning citizens after incarceration. By investing in the health of Tennesseans, not just health insurance, we are finding the solutions to improve access to health care. We commend Governor Lee and the legislature for looking for ways to provide flexibility to deliver better health outcomes for participants and cost-savings to taxpayers.”
