Affordable health insurance in Tennessee can be obtained through Cover Tennessee, a volunteer health insurance in Tennessee which is not only affordable to the state, but is also affordable to participants of Cover Tennessee. Cover Tennessee is designed to provide affordable and obtainable health care coverage for Tennessee residents who are without health insurance because they can not afford to purchase a health plan, or because they can afford to purchase a health plan but are continually turned down for health coverage due to a pre-existing health condition or severe ill health.
States across America are struggling to help their residents find affordable health insurance. Some Americans can not afford health insurance at all, while some can afford health insurance but can not obtain it because it seems that all health insurance companies they consult deem them “uninsurable.” Tennessee recognizes that children and adults alike are in need of affordable health insurance as well as coverage for prescription medication; therefore Tennessee has developed Cover Tennessee, a program similar to other health insurance and health care programs developed by other states throughout America.
Cover Tennessee is actually comparable to a gigantic umbrella, housing the five different “parts” of the Cover Tennessee health insurance coverage: CoverTN, CoverKids, CoverRx, AccessTN, and Project Diabetes. Thanks to each of these Cover Tennessee components, uninsured individuals, including children, can obtain adequate and affordable health insurance in Tennessee as well as coverage for prescription medication. Also, school-aged children learn about healthy eating habits to prevent diabetes and obesity through ProjectDiabetes.

Everyone deserves affordable health insurance, and the Cover Tennessee program is working toward making it possible for Tennessee residents to obtain it.
