The Tennessee’s Medicaid managed care program, typically referred to as TennCare, is authorized through a 1115 demonstration waiver. The state contracts with three health plans that deliver physical health and behavioral health benefits and long-term services and supports (LTSS) for most populations, including families and children, dual eligibles, and aged and disabled adults. The state’s three statewide health plans provide coverage on a full-risk capitated basis for most of the Medicaid population. Enrollees may select a health plan or be assigned to one.
TennCare Select provides services to special populations through a partially at-risk prepaid inpatient health plan (PIHP) that receives an administrative fee from the state.
This Tennessee Medicaid Contract is for TennCare Select, signed January 1, 2019.
