Republican Gov. Bill Haslam said that the state will submit a plan to federal regulators "sometime this fall with a plan ... that we think makes sense for Tennessee," according to the Nashville Tennessean.
Haslam's plan is likely to include elements of privatized coverage, reports Talking Points Memo.
"As we wait for a plan, Tennesseans lose $2.7 million a day. We can't get that back," Michele Johnson, executive director of the Tennessee Justice Center, told the Tennessean.
