How will the renewal process work?

  • When renewals begin, TennCare will have 12-months to complete every household’s renewal.
  • At the beginning of renewals, most TennCare members will be able to view their renewal month online at TennCare Connect or by calling 855-259-0701.
  • TennCare will first attempt to auto-renew every member’s health care coverage during their renewal month using existing and allowable data sources, like SNAP eligibility and IRS information. If TennCare can verify that a member still qualifies, the individual will receive a notice that their coverage was renewed.
  • If TennCare cannot auto-renew coverage using existing data sources, the member will receive a pre-populated renewal packet by mail or a notification by email, depending on their selected preference.
  • A member will be able to complete the renewal packet in any of these ways: online, by phone, by mail, by fax, or any Department of Human Services (DHS) county office can send your completed packet and proof to TennCare or you can use their kiosk to complete online.
  • A member will have 40-days to complete the packet.
