TJC IS A STRONG INDEPENDENT VOICE FOR OLDER ADULTS AND TENNESSEANS WITH DISABILITIES

TENNCARE LONG TERM SERVICES AND SUPPORTS (LTSS) PROGRAMS

Tennessee's TennCare Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) programs can be the only affordable option to achieve an independent life for many Tennesseans. Older adults and people with disabilities deserve the supports they need to be independent, healthy, and to participate in their communities, without red tape.

 

We help individuals and advocate for all Tennesseeans through education, advocacy, and public policy. We educate the public and policymakers about the importance of these TennCare LTSS programs, and the need to preserve, protect, and improve these programs to better meet the needs of our loved ones who may require hands on help to be safe. Failing to preserve these programs would adversely impact our communities and healthcare system.

 

We educate community partners and advocates through in-person and virtual trainings, education materials, and our newsletter. Please visit "Our Work" page to learn more about our work and see if we can help you!

For help with coverage issues, please visit our Need Our Help page, or call 615-255-0331 if you or someone you know needs our services.

Your organization was successful in getting my wife Barbara accepted into the CHOICES program. I have been attempting to secure this help from TennCare for approximately three years and unable to be approved. Thanks to Katie’s able leadership, we were successful.
