Tell Gov. Haslam to Protect The Rights of Medicaid Recipients

The Tennessee General Assembly has moved to dismiss women's health and disregard patients' rights in favor of imposing personal preferences into policy.

This time they're using HB 2251/SB 2148. Touted by Rep. Jimmy Matlock (R-Loudon) and Sen. Mike Bell (R-Cleveland), it is a discriminatory bill designed to cause TennCare (Medicaid) patients to lose the ability to visit Planned Parenthood health centers, and similar providers, for preventive care including birth control, breast exams, cancer screenings, and STI testing and treatment.

The bill is headed to Gov. Bill Haslam's desk to be signed. 

We need you to speak up and speak out! 

Send an email and call Gov. Haslam's office at (615)741-2001 to urge him to stop this discriminatory bill.
