Assistance for children with disabilities
Tennessee currently is the only state in the country that does not have a program offering coverage for children with significant disabilities living at home But that may soon change. Commissioner Brad Turner, says the state has submitted a waiver asking the federal government for approval to allow disabled children to get Medicaid assistance. A current Medicaid rule allows states to extend services to children even if their parents aren't poor enough to qualify for Medicaid. However, today Tennessee covers only children in households with income 200% below the federal poverty level, disqualifying many families.
