Tennessee Resources

Tennessee offers Medicaid, medicare and medi-cal program offerings for those that are living in the area. Addiction is an epidemic for the area and in order to fight against it, the lawmakers for Tennesse have to work together to come up with a solution.

Even though the state courts throughout Tennessee are overwhelmed with the number of things they have to do and cover, they are still making progress towards the opioid addiction. TennCare is shifting their gaze towards providing better coverage on longer-term opioid addiction treatment options. This way, those that require help are able to get it the first time around and have less of a chance of relapsing because of it. This helps the person and saves the company money.

There are resources provided below for anyone that wants help. These resources are for Medicaid, medicare and medi-cal recipients, not those with private insurance coverage. Help is always available.
