In January 2015, Tennessee released a proposed amendment to its current Section 1115 demonstration to implement the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion. While the state legislature ultimately decided not to pursue the amendment, this alternative approach is just one example of alternative approaches to traditional Medicaid expansion. Other states, including Arkansas, Iowa, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Michigan, have also proposed and (some have) operated these alternative models.
Read over the documents regarding the proposed Insure Tennessee program:

These documents were prepared by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam’s administration and provided to the Tennessee General Assembly. Because of a prior law, the Tennessee General Assembly must approve any proposal that would expand the state’s Medicaid program under the ACA.
