Bright & Early: Put A Cap On It Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Anywhere from 5,000 to 20,000 TennCare recipients could be affected by a spending cap that will be put into place as a part of the 9% budget cut that Tennessee’s Medicaid program will be receiving. The cap will actually be applied to more than 400,000 enrollees, but not all are expected to exceed it with their medical expenses. Children and pregnant women will be excluded from the cuts.
