TennCare / Obama Care Related Issue: 16,000 Tennesseans May Have a Problem in 2014

CoverTN will not be available starting January, 1st 2014.

In 2006, then-Governor Phil Bredesen signed CoverTennessee into law giving thousands of people who were not purged off of TennCare access to some type of health care. It not only helped small business owners, but also struggling families and children.

The state says the looming Affordable Care Act means the program has to go away because it doesn’t meet new federal guidelines that begin January 1st. 16,000 Tennesseans are currently enrolled.

People who are currently with CoverTennessee can either enroll in something with their employer, or get health insurance through the nearing federal Health Insurance Marketplace, but right now the cost isn’t clear.

Next year, people who choose to go without health insurance could face a penalty come tax time.
