TennCare is Tennessee’s Medicaid managed care program and works much like regular health insurance. If you participate in this program, the state covers your doctor appointments minus any other health insurance you may have. There are several categories of individuals who are eligible for both full time and part time Medicaid. To see you if you are eligible or not you can visit: http://www.tennessee.gov/tenncare/mem-categories.html
There is also a Medicaid option for Tennessee residents under the age of 21. TENNder CARE offers services that emphasize preventive care. The plan is a full program of checkups and health care that makes sure babies, children, teens, and young adults receive the health care they need.

CoverKids is another Tennessee state ran program that provides free health coverage for residents of Tennessee 18 and under. The program was made for those who don’t qualify for Medicaid but at the same time can’t afford private insurance. The program emphasizes preventive care and coverage for physician services, hospital stays, vaccines, well-visits, mental health, vision, dental, and more. There are low co-pays and well-child visits and immunizations are 100% covered. You can visit the program’s web site at http://www.covertn.gov/web/cover_kids.html

The low-cost coverage program is a limited-benefit insurance plan to those residents of Tennessee over the age of 19. Other qualifications include those working in a small-business, sole proprietors, and individuals who work without health insurance benefits.
