3-Star Health Task Force Report, An alternative to Insure Tennessee

 

Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Nashville, TN – The recent report from the 3-Star Health Task Force is now in the books and deserves great scrutiny and a modicum of praise for their work.

You will recall the task force was appointed by Speaker of the House Beth Harwell in response to the growing need to address the rising number of Tennesseans who fall into the “coverage gap”, or those who don’t qualify for the state run TennCare nor the Health Care Marketplace policies made available by the Affordable Care Act.

Allow me to applaud Speaker Harwell for creating the Task Force in the face of brisk criticism for the Tennessee General Assembly’s inaction in addressing the need for more Tennesseans to have access to health care options through a viable health insurance plan.
