Please, vote NO on HB1215 in House Finance Subcommittee on March 8.
Despite what the fiscal note says, I urge the Finance Committee to discuss the different scenarios that could play out with the bill and consider the costs to the state because this bill seems like it is on a collision course.
If fewer insurance companies are interested in becoming MCOs in the wake of the bill, then there is less competition and potentially higher costs and lower quality for Tennessee.
Even if insurance companies do comply and participate, there is a risk to federal funds because the federal government will correctly construe this bill as discrimination. And, of course, there is the cost of court challenges to the measure.
Thank you for considering my views.
