The Biden administration has begun pulling back Medicaid changes advanced by Trump officials that would restrict eligibility, add wellness requirements, allow block grants, or increase recipient cost-sharing. The Trump administrationÕs last-minute approval of a block grant proposal in TennCare, TennesseeÕs Medicaid program, could face roadblocks from the Biden administration. States continue to expand their use of MCOs and are moving to encourage care coordination and integration of medical, pharmacy, and behavioral health services. MCOs, which administer care for 76 percent of those enrolled, continue to see Medicaid as a solid avenue for growth.
