WHAT IS ASKJANE!?
Created by the TJC, AskJane! is a screening tool that links the uninsured to public health benefits. It makes navigating the maze of public health benefits easier and more reliable.
With over 25 different pathways to public health coverage, the laws and regulations governing eligibility are very complex. To further complicate matters, each program has its own specific set of income and household composition requirements to determine eligibility. Unfortunately, mastering all the eligibility rules can often elude even the most seasoned healthcare professionals. This is what happened to Beverly.
HOW ASKJANE! WORKS
Utilizing a series of questions, the tool systematically categorizes applicants, identifies potential coverage, and calculates eligibility. Unlike any other public or private calculator, AskJane! screens for TennCare eligibility plus Medicare savings plans, premium tax credits, and cost-sharing reductions.
AskJane! is easy to use. Because the screening process utilizes a question and answer format, users are provided with all of the right questions to ask an applicant to obtain the critical information needed to determine eligibility. Armed with this information, AskJane! takes over and performs the necessary mathematical calculations and checks the obvious as well as the often-overlooked areas for coverage.
