    Bill Summary

    ON MARCH 19, 2018, THE HOUSE ADOPTED AMENDMENT #2 AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 1551, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #2 rewrites this bill to require that an amendment to the existing TennCare II waiver be submitted to the federal centers for medicare and medicaid services (CMS) authorizing the bureau of TennCare to create reasonable work and community engagement requirements for able-bodied working age adult enrollees without dependent children under the age of six. The waiver must be consistent with the most recent guidance to state medicaid directors provided by CMS concerning opportunities to promote work and community engagement in demonstration projects authorized federal law. The state must seek the necessary approval from the United States department of health and human services to utilize funds from the temporary assistance to needy families (TANF) program under the Families First Act for eligible expenditures related to the waiver. Implementation of the waiver will be contingent upon the available use of TANF funds or other federal appropriations to meet the requirements of the waiver.
