Datapoint: CMS Approves Tennessee Medicaid Block Grant

With just days remaining in the Trump administration, CMS last week approved Tennessee’s waiver request to convert its traditional Medicaid funding to a block grant. Block grants, a conservative reform approach opposed by the incoming Biden administration, cap federal spending at a fixed dollar amount while allowing states more freedom in what services are covered under Medicaid, and who can apply for benefits. Tennessee currently serves 1,503,839 Medicaid beneficiaries. The state has not expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.
