Medicaid rules changes could cost TennCare millions in funding

The Tennessean, April 2, 2008
TennCare stands to lose millions of dollars in funding because of new federal rules that aim to close loopholes that have allowed states to shift more of their share of responsibility for funding Medicaid to the federal government. One rule would change the definition of a public hospital, leaving Metro General in Nashville, TN, as the only one among 24 hospitals in Tennessee whose charity care expenses could be used by TennCare to draw federal matching dollars.
