Memphis Commercial Appeal: Medicaid Expansion Would Provide Behavioral Health Coverage For 114,000 Tennesseans
An estimated 114,000 low-income uninsured residents in Tennessee would get access to care for mental illness and substance use disorder if the state accepted a federal offer of Medicaid expansion dollars, federal officials reported today. In Mississippi, 61,000 uninsured residents would gain coverage for behavioral health and drug and alcohol disorder services if that state accepted the Affordable Care Act’s offer of expanded Medicaid. (McKenzie, 3/28)
