GetCoveredTenn is a non-profit program providing free health insurance enrollment and healthcare advice to all Tennesseans.

If clients are eligible for the Affordable Care Act, the link below explains how our Get Covered Tennessee Certified Navigators can assist them:

TennCare is Tennessee’s Medicaid system. It covers more than 1.5 million Tennesseans. CoverKids is Tennessee’s Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It covers children and pregnant women.  While they are different program, both are administered by the Tennessee State Division of TennCare. In 2018 an estimated 55,719 children were eligible for TennCare or CoverKids but were not enrolled.  

If clients are eligible for TNCARE /CoverKids, the link below explains how Family & Children Services' Get Covered Tennessee Health Assist Specialist can assist them:

Some clients are “in the gap” meaning they are not eligible for TNCARE/CoverKids nor Affordable Care Act because Tennessee did not expand Medicaid. We offer safety net assistance to these clients through our Health Assist program. Health Assist provides underinsured as well as uninsured Tennesseans with information on and referral to low and no-cost, community-based health care resources, including medical, dental, vision, prescription, mental health, and other resources. Specialists also screen all callers for eligibility for additional publicly funded health insurance programs.
