Katie Beckett Program
The TennCare Katie Beckett Program is for children under 18 with disabilities or complex medical needs who are not Medicaid eligible because of their parent’s income or assets. It helps to provide care for the child’s medical needs or disability that private insurance does not cover. The care is provided in the child’s home or in the community.
How to Enroll
There is a limit on how many children can enroll in Part A and Part B. The limits are based on the amount of funding approved for the program.
Part A has funding to serve up to 300 children. The actual number of children served in Part A will depend on the cost of services each child needs. If the cost of services is lower than expected, we can serve more children. If the cost of services is higher, we will serve fewer children. Children with the highest needs will be served first in Part A.
