Tennessee Government Service Options
If you are looking for individual, group or family insurance there are plenty of options in Tennessee. Even TennCare (Medicaid), CoverRX, AccessTN and TENNder CARE are available options. Government programs like these help provide basic health coverage to individuals who are unable to pay for private insurance or are considered uninsurable due to medical reasons. HealthTN is able to assist any Blount County resident with navigating the TN insurance landscape to find a plan suitable for their budget and needs as well as figuring out which Tennessee resource option they might belong to.
What is Tenncare?
If the terminology has confused you, Medicaid is referred to as TennCare in Tennessee. Just like regular health insurance, Medicaid will send a card that you show your doctor at your appointments if you qualify for the program. As long as Medicaid is accepted by your doctor, you will have your bill paid for by the state, with the deduction of any additional insurance you have. It is not only doctor visits that are covered by Medicaid, other medical services are included as well. A few of those services are prescription drug coverage, acute care services and long-term services. This depends on your individual needs.
Am I eligible for CoverRX?
Should you not belong in any of the categories mentioned you still have a strong possibility of being eligible for at least partial Medicaid coverage.
CoverRX is a program directed at pharmacy assistance which lowers the cost on more than 250 generic medications as well as a few brand name medications that treat specific conditions. This program was made to help people who need to take certain medications but are without pharmacy coverage. Unlike TennCare, CoverRX is not a HI program and therefore it does not cover any doctor visits.
High risk Tennesseans that are considered medically uninsurable due to preexisting conditions can receive health insurance through AccessTN. Eligible patients are offered three plan options that each have a monthly premium through the program. Each premium is made to match current market rates.
