TennCare cuts threaten Nashville General hospital

The Tennessean, February 4, 2010

A proposed $200 million in cuts to TennCare could mean a budget gap of $10.5 million for Nashville General Hospital, which has struggled financially in recent years. The proposal also would limit coverage for TennCare recipients, forcing hospitals to pick up what the health insurance plan will not. Gov. Phil Bredesen offered up the cuts in his budget address as a way to help solve Tennessee's financial shortfall for the coming fiscal year. But supporters of the public hospital wonder whether Nashville General, and a sister safety net hospital, the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, would survive the cuts, The Tennessean reports.
