A possible expansion of Medicaid will be discussed at an Anderson County Interagency Coalition meeting next week.
Representatives of all health and social service providers in Anderson County are invited to attend, a press release said.
The meeting will be held at the Anderson County Health Department from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Teresa Brittain of the Free Medical Clinic of Oak Ridge and Mike Belbeck of Methodist Medical Center will give a presentation titled, “Medicaid Expansion: What does it mean for you and your clients?” Social service providers can learn about the possible impact on their agencies and clients based on Tennessee’s decision on whether or not to take part in the expansion of Medicaid.
The Anderson County Health Department is located at 710 N. Main St. in Clinton.
ACIC was formed to bring all nonprofit and for-profit health and social service providers together to resolve issues of common concern, improve coordination of services and to identify and improve resources to support these services, the press release said. Meeting locations alternate between Clinton and Oak Ridge and are announced prior to each meeting.
Attendees are welcome to bring a lunch. Chocolates will be provided by ACIC, the release said.
Reservations are not required but appreciated and may be made by calling Rick Morrow at the United Way of Anderson County at (865) 483-8431.
