The TennCareSM CHOICES in Long-Term Services and Supports program is for adults age 21 and older with a physical disability and seniors age 65 and older. CHOICES offers services to help a person live in their own home or in the community. These services are called Home and Community Based Services (HCBS). These services can be provided in the home, on the job or in the community. They may include help with daily living activities, getting a job and becoming actively involved in the community. CHOICES also provides care in a nursing home if needed
Our CHOICES team includes care coordinators and consumer advocates who work directly with you and the agencies, individuals and companies that provide care.
Can CHOICES help you? Get started by calling us at 1-800-468-9698. You’ll find more starting on page 43 of your member handbook. Choose the handbook for your health plan, BlueCareSM or TennCareSelect.
