I understand the importance of people who can work, are able to find suitable employment, and have the needs of their family members met is important. Also, the wise use of state and federal funding is imperative. But, when changes to a program, such as those currently proposed to TennCare, make little sense when the cost and manpower exceed tremendously the cost savings within the program. Many people do not have access and/or have none to little understanding of how computers work and response systems. Their responses may also end up being written/submitted by others who have no interest in the individuals or are voicing their views rather than the TennCare recipients. The $ spent on implementation and oversight make no sense for the outcome.
