Local Legal Aid Society Says TennCare Re-Enrollment Packages to be Mailed Out in April

Rutherford County, TN - The renewal period for TennCare insurance in the state of Tennessee is about to re-open, after being shut down for quite some time. During the COVID Pandemic that renewal process was paused because the government was operating under a state of emergency. Therefore, TennCare recipients remained insured and did not have to submit updated paperwork to renew their coverage.

Now that the state of emergency has been lifted, TennCare is re-opening the renewal process… That was Aimee Luna with the Legal Aid Society. If you’re currently on TennCare, you should be receiving a renewel package in the mail. Postal workers will begin delivering the packages in April, but because mailings will be in groups, you may not receive your package until May or June. Luna highlighted just a few of the categories that make residents eligible for TennCare…


IMPORTANT: It’s important to note that if you changed your address over the past two years, your renewal package will likely be mailed to your previous address. The Legal Aid Society in Rutherford County said it's important to make sure that TennCare has your correct mailing address. You can learn more and/or update your information with TennCare by visiting TennCareConnect.TN.gov. You can also call TennCare at 855-259-0701.
