Types of Cases
Attorneys who agree to work with our clients pro bono will have the opportunity to represent low-income Tennesseans in TennCare appeals. There are two main categories of appeals that our clients face:
1. Delay appeals: These appeals involve individuals who have been wrongfully denied TennCare or who have been approved for TennCare but with the wrong effective date of coverage, leaving them with huge medical bills that should be covered by TennCare.
2. Service appeals: These appeals involve individuals who are already on TennCare but have experienced problems getting their medical services.
Hearings are held by phone, so the pro bono attorney need not live in the same geographic area as the client.
