CoverKids

2015 - INCOME CRITERIA

Qualifying for enrollment for CoverKids is based on a household income of up to 250% of the federal poverty level (FPL), the number of persons in the household and also on the age of the child you wish to enroll. Household income includes income earned and income received.

"Persons in household" refers to the immediate family members that reside in the household, including the applicant, such as parents or guardians and siblings. The income considered is the income that is received that supports this family unit.

Pregnant women should include the number of expected babies when determining “persons in the household” when applying for HealthyTNBabies coverage.

Please refer to the charts below to determine if you should apply for enrollment for your child in CoverKids or for TennCare.
