I am opposed to the proposed work requirement for TN Medicaid recipients. People on Medicaid would be required to submit paper work few would be able to complete online when TN has poor access to internet in rural areas . This would be an additional cost to the state at a time when the governor has already asked all departments to examine how they would cut 2 % from their budgets. The proposal makes no sense from a fiscal or humanitarian point of view.
