TENNESSEE (WATE) — A new program in Tennessee to help the families of children with special needs will officially get the green light later this month.
State officials announcing Monday, Nov. 2, the Katie Beckett Program had received federal approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The program allows children with special or complex needs, who don’t qualify for Medicaid due to their parents’ or guardians’ income, to receive financial assistance to help with their healthcare.
Referrals from the program are expected to start in Nov. 23.
