New Medicaid Pregnancy & Postpartum Benefits Effective April 1, 2022
TennCare enrollees who have Medicaid during a pregnancy will now keep their coverage for 12 months following the end of pregnancy. They will also have dental benefits during this time!
To access dental benefits, the enrollee must update TennCare Connect account to tell us about the pregnancy. Enrollees can update TennCare Connect account by calling 855-259-0701 or visiting tenncareconnect.tn.gov.
Help connect TennCare moms to care!
- Remind pregnant moms to update TennCare Connect by calling 855-259-0701 or updating their account online at tenncareconnect.tn.gov. For detailed instructions on how to update your TennCare Connect account, visit the Notify TennCare of a Pregnancy page.
- Preventive, diagnostic, and restorative, dental treatment is safe throughout pregnancy. Help educate, encourage, and connect moms to dental care by finding a local provider at dentaquest.com/state-plans/regions/tennessee or call 855-418-1622.
New resources are available for general use to help spread the word. These resources can be distributed online, printed for distribution, or posted on doors of waiting rooms or exam rooms.
