Pharmacists brace for "total chaos" starting on Monday

Some pharmacists are predicting "total chaos" Monday as major changes in TennCare drug policies take effect. The changes will directly affect 700,000 people across the state. Some will lose TennCare drug coverage entirely while others will face new limits on the number and type of prescriptions they can fill.

TennCare pharmacy director Dave Bashra said state officials have worked hard on the transition, but admits the changes bring (quote) "a little bit of a learning curve."

TennCare will stop paying for prescriptions for about 290,000 people.
