Comptroller: Paperwork Making TennCare Harder Than Necessary for Vulnerable Enrollees

Investigators from the Tennessee Comptroller’s office said that an overly complicated, 98-page renewal form is making it difficult for low-income enrollees to maintain their health coverage, WPLN reports. The investigation was requested by House Speaker Beth Harwell, and revealed that TennCare routinely requests information from enrollees that the agency already knows, and that enrollees sometimes don’t even receive their forms. Michele Johnson from the Tennessee Justice Center said that the forms are so dense and complicated that doctors and lawyers regularly call their offices for help.
