Katie Beckett Waiver Meeting


Do you have a child with special health care needs? Is your income too high for your child to get TennCare?

The Tennessee Justice Center and Family Voices are working together to educate families about an option for children who have special health care needs!

The Katie Beckett waiver lets states offer Medicaid for children who have disabilities if it will keep them from going to an institution. The waiver does not count parent’s income.

Many states offer the Katie Beckett waiver but Tennessee does not. The Tennessee Justice Center and Family Voices want to make this option a reality for families in Tennessee! 

They want to hear your stories about how this could benefit your child and give you the tools you need to be a powerful voice! 

When:
     Wednesday, September 19
     12:00 pm- 1:30 pm
Where:
      Bearden Branch Library
     100 Golf Club Rd 
      Knoxville TN 37919

If you are attending, please RSVP to Nikki at 615-255-0331 or nviverette@tnjustice.org by
September 14.
