According to TennCare, they are ready to resume the redetermination process. This means:
- TennCare is going to resume processing of the redetermination packets they sent out in December and January. They will be sending termination notices to people that did not respond to those packets. Individuals will have 90 days from the date of termination to respond or submit verifications. If these verifications prove that someone should be eligible for TennCare coverage, he or she should not experience a lapse in coverage.
- TennCare has announced that an additional group of 90,000 people will receive redetermination packets between June and August 2016. (Please note that individuals enrolled in Long-Term Services & Supports, or LTSS, will not be included as part of the 90,000 people. TennCare said that LTSS redeterminations will begin in August 2016. We will provide more information about the LTSS redetermination process when we have it.)
