TennCare underestimates its future enrollment, report suggests

The Tennessean, May 27, 2010
Five years into healthcare reform under the recently passed law, Tennessee could have almost a half million more residents on Medicaid, according to a report. And the state could be paying an extra $1.5 billion for those services over five years, the Kaiser Family Foundation report estimates. Both numbers are higher than an estimate of 200,000 new participants and $1 billion over five years put out by TennCare officials in March.
