Part B Services

  • Part B of the Katie Beckett Program will serve children with disabilities or complex medical needs.
  • Children in Part B will not be enrolled in Medicaid. They would receive up to $10,000 a year in services for their child.
  • Families will have the flexibility to choose any or all of the following services within their budget:  premium assistance, a health-care savings type account, reimbursement for services that would benefit the child but can’t be covered under a health-care savings account, consumer-directed respite, and supportive home care services, or an array of services from a community-based provider.

DIDD utilizes Consumer Direct Care Network of Tennessee as the fiscal entity responsible for payment of health insurance premium assistance, reimbursement for services not covered in the HRA, and consumer-directed respite and supportive home care. 

CDTN's customer service team may be reached at InfoCDTN@consumerdirectcare.comCDTN or 888-450-3242 to assist with questions regarding enrollment forms and payment information for consumer-directed services. 


Other questions about these services can be directed to your Katie Beckett case manager.
