Health Care Reform and CoverTN

Although health care reform passed, CoverTN will continue to apply annual dollar and visit limits and quarterly dollar limits on prescription drugs.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services granted CoverTN a one-year waiver in December 2010 so we can continue to offer this limited benefit plan with the same benefits and premiums as last year.

CoverTN mailed a Member Handbook amendment about this to all members in January. The amended handbook can be found at If you have any questions about this matter, call Member Services at 1-888-887-3224.
