BlueCare Tennessee benefits overview
We want you to get the most from your benefits. So we put together these helpful details. Your coverage depends on your age and benefit level. Your benefit level is determined by TennCare. You can find that on the front of your Member ID card.
All members get medical and behavioral health care. Prescription drugs too. Behavioral health includes mental health and substance misuse. Care must be medically required to be covered. If you’re also on Medicare, note that your prescriptions come through Medicare.
This program provides extra support for foster parents and children in state care. We’re honored to be Tennessee’s only health plan to help these special families. You can learn more about this program on our Foster Parents Support page.SEE MORE
