TennCare postpones some cuts for a year

AP/The Tennessean, March 19, 2010
TennCare officials announced they will be able to use a federal refund of $121 million to postpone some cuts to Tennesee's expanded Medicaid program for a year. Gov. Phil Bredesen has said he needs to cut $201 million from TennCare, which has about 1.2 million enrollees, to balance the state budget. TennCare director Darin Gordon said limitations on non-emergency outpatient visits, physician procedures and implementation of a $2 copay on non-emergency transportation are among items that will be postponed for a year.
