AG says Tenn. would have right to cancel Medicaid expansion

Attorney General Herbert Slatery says in a legal opinion that the state would be able to cancel Gov. Bill Haslam's proposal to extend health coverage 200,000 low-income Tennesseans if costs exceed expectations.  .......the state "would retain the ability to suspend or terminate the demonstration program" as long as it provides proper notice and phase-out procedures.

But Slatery said his office lacks "sufficiently specific information" to determine how long it would take to process 200,000 people off the state's health care rolls.  (link)
