TennCare is the state of Tennessee’s Medicaid program. It provides health care to low-income pregnant women, children, older adults and individuals who have a disability. Amerigroup is a health plan serving TennCare members in the state of Tennessee.
For some types of care, you may have to pay part of the cost. This is called a copay. Not everyone has a copay. Your Amerigroup card will tell you if you have a copay and what it is. Learn more about copays on the TennCare website.
To keep your benefits, you need to renew every 12 months. If you don’t renew on time, you could lose your benefits. Learn more.
