The federal director of Medicaid programs is giving Tennessee 10 days to submit a correction plan after failing to provide services for people as required by the Affordable Care Act. The Tennessean reports that the crux of the problem concerns delays with bringing a $35 million computer system online. Tennessee is also criticized for not providing people with face-to-face help in applying and for not setting up a program that allows hospitals to temporarily enroll people in Medicaid if they are presumed eligible.
