Tennessee’s House Expected to Approve a Plan to Overhaul the State’s Medicaid Program

Tennessee’s GOP-dominant Legislature is poised to approve a contentious plan today (Friday) for a drastic overhaul of the state’s Medicaid program. The House is expected to follow the Senate’s vote yesterday (Thursday), a quick turnaround in hopes of making it difficult for the incoming President-elect Joe Biden’s administration to overturn the deal.
The plan would make Tennessee the first state to receive funding in a lump sum for its Medicaid program through a block grant. A change of administrations in Washington makes its prospects uncertain.

President Donald Trump’s administration granted Tennessee’s approval last week. Biden has opposed block-grant efforts and can rescind the change.
