Haslam decision on Medicaid expansion still on hold

NASHVILLE — Back in May, Gov. Bill Haslam told reporters that his administration was engaged in heavy dialogue with federal officials on expanding Medicaid and that the issue would likely be decided — one way or the other — during the summer.
"I think if we haven't made real progress by this summer, it will show that we're not going to. I think it will come down to, here's what CMS says it will do and that works for us or it won't and we'll know that by summer," he said at the time.
Summer has ended and with fall underway, the dialogue with the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, continues — Haslam called it "this back and forth world" at one point — with no clear deadline for a decision, officials say.
