Gov. Bill Haslam sat down with the editorial board at the Tennessean for an in depth discussion of the new “Insure Tennessee” health care coverage that was announced yesterday morning. Through it’s two primary plans, The Volunteer Plan and the Healthy Incentives plan, Insure Tennessee is designed to assist residents earning less than 138% of the federal poverty level. The announcement is preceded by almost 2 years of not expanding Medicaid coverage with the roll-out of Obamacare, rejecting 1.2 billion dollars in federal funding. Governor Haslam explains why they didn’t expand at that time and the purpose behind this expansion, which is unique to Tennessee.
