Former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen says federal health officials are probably willing to talk terms on an expansion of Medicaid in Tennessee with the state’s current governor, Bill Haslam.

“The feds want us to do it badly enough that they will negotiate some things to have protections,” Bredesen said in response to a question at the Economic Club of Memphis. The question was whether he thought Haslam should accept an expansion of Medicaid that is all federally funded for the first three years of the expansion.
