A) To apply for Medicaid in Tennessee, you will need to provide the following information:

- Your address
- Your income
- Your assets
- Your household size
- Your disability status
You will also need to provide proof of your identity and residency. This can include a driver’s license, birth certificate, or utility bill.
If you are moving to Tennessee from another state, you will need to provide proof of your Medicaid coverage in your previous state. This can include a letter from your Medicaid provider or a copy of your Medicaid card.
You can apply for Medicaid in Tennessee online, by mail, or in person at your local Department of Human Services (DHS) office.
Here are some additional tips for applying for Medicaid in Tennessee:
- Start the process as soon as possible. The application process can take several weeks, so it is best to start the process as soon as possible.
- Be prepared to provide documentation. The DHS office will need to see documentation of your income, assets, and residency in order to determine your eligibility for benefits.
