Notes: Alliance pushes Medicaid expansion
AUTHOR: Stephen Elliott
A group of bi-partisan advocacy groups have launched a campaign to encourage the expansion of Medicaid in Tennessee.
The coalition, named the Coalition for a Strong Tennessee, is running billboard ads depicting sports fans from neighboring Kentucky and Arkansas thanking Tennesseans “for paying for our health care.”
The alliance includes Tennessee chapters of the Children’s Hospital Alliance, American Cancer Society, League of Women Voters and the American Academy of Pediatrics, in addition to more than a dozen other groups.
