NEED OUR HELP?

TJC offers free self help guidance for people who believe they may be eligible for TennCare (Tennessee’s Medicaid program), CoverKids, Medicare Savings Programs, CHOICES, and Employment and Community First (ECF) CHOICES. Our client advocates can provide free assistance for appeal requests for public health benefits programs over the phone at (615) 255-0331.

TOOLS AND TRAININGS

TJC offers a wide array of free and paid tools and trainings throughout the year. In collaboration with our expert legal staff, we use our knowledge of the law and our experience working with clients to train financial counselors, social workers, and health care providers throughout the state on a wide range of health care related topics.

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

Need help navigating TennCare on a regular basis? Consider a technical assistance service agreement with the TJC. Whether you need a quick answer to an eligibility question or help filing a complicated appeal, you will have a trusted partner to help guide you along the way. Looking for something else to help your organization? With over 25 different pathways to public health coverage, the laws and regulations governing eligibility are very complex. Created by the TJC, AskJane! is a screening tool that links the uninsured to public health benefits.

MEDICAL DEBT HELP

Medical debt is a problem facing 1-in-5 Tennesseans.  In fact, it’s the leading cause of bankruptcy in the state.  For those with medical debt, navigating the process can be challenging, especially when a debt collection agency starts calling.  We break down the process as well as provide you with downloadable resources and practical steps you can take to reduce your debt or eliminate it entirely.  If you have unpaid hospital bills, we will show you how to request financial assistance also known as “charity care”.  We explain your rights as a consumer, including how to deal with annoying debt collectors. If you are having trouble with threats or harassing collection calls, we will show you how to make them stop.  Understanding the process and your rights are the keys to dealing with medical debt, and this the place to start.
