DHS will no longer be processing TennCare Medicaid eligibility applications. The DHS role is changing, and DHS will have a supportive role in the process. DHS will be assisting in providing access to kiosks where potential applicants can access TennCare Medicaid applications through the Health Insurance Marketplace. You can learn more about this on the TennCare website. DHS staff is available in local offices to help facilitate the use of kiosks and to provide assistance.
On March 23rd, 2010, the President signed health reform into law. National health reform will change many aspects of health care including Medicaid programs like TennCare.
