RE: TennCare Waiver Amendment 38
Dear Secretary Azar,
I am submitting the following comments in response to the public notice inviting public comments on proposed Waiver Amendment 38. My name is Marian Varner, and I am a resident of Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
I am opposed to this proposal that people who are not employed would not be able to have health care coverage. The paperwork to demonstrate compliance would be a burden to many people, and cost the state more money than the health care coverage would. This would negatviely affect the health of certain Tennesseeans who already have limited incomes. It would also cost taxpayers such as me extra money.
For these reasons, I ask that you not implement this proposed regulation.
Sincerely,
Marian Varner,
Oak Ridge, Tennessee
