Initiatives -
TennCare is the managed-care Medicaid agency in Tennessee that provides access to healthcare insurance to Medicaid-eligible patients and others who lack access to care. TennCare enrollees are primarily low-income: children, pregnant women, parents of minor children, and people who are elderly or have a disability. During the study period of the initiative TennCare also covered persons who were uninsured and/or insurable, even if they did not otherwise qualify for Medicaid.
