Civil Rights Information

When a program or entity receives federal funding, beneficiaries, like TennCare members, and participants, like providers, in that program have the right to receive services or participate in that program free from discrimination because of their race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, conscience and religious freedom, or other statuses protected by federal and/or state law.

One way you can improve your patients’ health is by connecting them with community resources (like food pantries and housing help).
