Mental Health Screening
TennCare recognizes the impact that mental health in pregnancy can have on the lives of members.
TennCare’s Managed Care Organizations offer enhanced reimbursement associated with mental health screening when using a validated tool and provide supports for conducting follow-up on women with positive screening results. Further details on these programs, including screening tools are provided in the following resources. For further details on enhanced reimbursement, providers are encouraged to contact their provider representatives for each relevant Managed Care Organization.
