State seeks ruling on TennCare

The Tennessean, January 8, 2009

Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen's administration has asked a federal judge to release the state from a decades-old court order in a healthcare lawsuit that could allow the state to drop some TennCare recipients and potentially save the state tens of millions of dollars. The move returns to the forefront a long-standing case over the state's ability to fairly determine whether a group of about 150,000 disabled TennCare recipients are entitled to the benefits.
