Work for TennCare
House Speaker Beth Harwell's has introduced a bill to add work requirements for "able-bodied" TennCare recipients with an amendment to remove expected costs to the state. But the move would take away funding for needy Tennesseans. The measure calls for requiring work by “able-bodied” adults without young children who are on TennCare. A recent review by the Tennessee Fiscal Review Committee has estimated the work requirements could cost the state about $646,000 during the next fiscal year and more in future years. But Rep. Dan Howell, R-Georgetown,has introduced an amendment that he says would kill the costs to the state. He wants to use federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families block grant funding to help cover Tennessee's work-requirement expenses. That would mean less money from the Needy Families block grant for needy families.
