AMC v. Smith, Civil Action No. 3:20-cv-00240 (M.D. Tenn.) 

AMC v. Smith is an ongoing lawsuit filed in 2020 involving the administration of Tennessee’s Medicaid program, known as TennCare. Thirty-five children and adults from across Tennessee brought a class action on behalf of the program’s 1.4 million enrollees challenging the state’s wrongful termination of people’s health insurance. The plaintiffs allege that TennCare’s system for reevaluating eligibility is defective and fails to provide the notice and opportunity for hearing required by the Medicaid Act and the Constitution. They also claim that TennCare’s eligibility redetermination process discriminates against people with disabilities. The Tennessee Justice Center filed this case in partnership with the National Health Law Program, National Center for Law and Economic Justice, and Selendy and Gay, PLLC.
