Lawmakers voted 26-1 to have freedom for residents to choose their own Tennessee health insurance. The bill was passed on Wednesday and is known as the Health Freedom Act. The passage of this law is to combat any mandated measures required by a health care reform bill that is still lingering in Congress.
Supporters for Tennessee health insurance freedom want to protect their residents and they do not feel this is an over reaction to a bill that hasn’t been passed yet. Thirty other states are also working towards passing laws similar to this one.
