Foster Parents Support
We’re honored to stand by your side
We work with foster parents across the state to get the best health care possible for children and teens in custody with the Department of Children’s Services (DCS). We’re here to help keep them healthy, safe and on track.
A little extra something with SelectKids
We’re here to help foster parents get the care their children need. Children and teens in state custody get most of the same TennCare℠ benefits. That includes free checkups and follow-up care until age 21.
You can see more details about your child’s benefits in this booklet.

Our partnership with DCS
