Legal advocacy groups to announce federal suit against TN

The Southern Poverty Law Center, Tennessee Justice Center and National Health Law Program are holding a press conference call at 11 a.m. Wednesday to announced the filing of a federal lawsuit against the state of Tennessee.

The suit is expected to address the failures within the state's Medicaid program, TennCare. Earlier this month, officials with the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services outlined six areas in which TennCare is noncompliant with Affordable Care Act requirements.

Following the rebuke, the Times Free Press reported that the three legal advocacy groups were closely monitoring TennCare's response, and that a lawsuit would be a last resort in solving the state-run agency's issues.
